Cradles to Crayons Field Trip 2019

Cradles to Crayons: January 23 and 25,  our third and fourth graders will volunteer at Cradles to Crayons. “Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.”  During this two hour volunteer effort, our students will sort, clean, categorize, and work to create a package to be delivered to a Chicago area child in-need. We hope to help our students learn the importance of service/engagement and how they can play a role in supporting others who find themselves without the basics. We have been asked by “Cradles” to collect new socks and new underwear to be redistributed. We have a Cradles box near our front office for the collection. Thank you in advance for supporting this unique learning opportunity for our students.
