3rd Grade Goodwill
For the holiday season, our 3rd graders found a wonderful way to be of service to people in need. They pooled their resources to make a donation to Heifer International, whose mission is to end world hunger through sustainability. They gave the gift of a cow, chicks, geese, bees, tree seedlings, a sheep, ducks, a llama and a goat to people in 3rd world countries who needed them to improve their lives. How did they do it you ask?
- They did chores at home, for neighbors or extended family members in exchange for a small donation.
- Some shared their allowance.
- Several students operated a hot chocolate stand.
- Miss Andrea pledged $1 to the donation fund for each correct times table recitation and one of the parents from the class matched it. The students were motivated to see their good deed grow, and also had a lot of fun using their times tables to count the money.

| AUCTION ITEM DONATIONS DUE FEB. 1
Our Gala is in 57 days! The volunteer crew is hard at work. Help them to avoid the last-minute rush by getting your fabulous donations in NOW. Every family is encouraged to procure or donate 1 item, and please beat the Feb. 1 deadline if at all possible. It just helps the team to do a more thorough job using your donation to raise money for the school.
Event tickets will be on sale starting next week, so please look for your invitation via email (we are saving paper and ensuring every dollar goes to the school by foregoing a printed invitation). It's time for the classes to start forming their tables, so please talk to your room rep about getting yourself a spot.
