Fourth Graders Collected Canned Goods
Wednesday, January 14, 2009 • Posted January 14, 2009

The fourth graders at Mason Elementary School were very busy during the weeks before Christmas. Each student was encouraged to think about the true meaning of the season and to be more aware of the needs’ of others over themselves. Through two important activities they succeeded! Each of the three classrooms collected canned goods for the local food bank, and several large boxes were delivered to this great cause. The children also brought in money that they earned to help children in another country. They collected a total of $200.00 for orphaned children in Vietnam. This money will purchase meals for five children for three months. Way to go kids. We are all so proud of you!
