March is the Month of Giving Back

March is the Month of Giving Back! 

PTC has dubbed March the month of giving back and we invite the school community to participate in 2 different drives we will be hosting as a way to support children in our local community. 

First, in conjunction with Read Across America Week, we will be running a used book drive and exchange from March 1-10. Each classroom will have a book exchange box starting on March 1. Students are encouraged to bring books from home that they are done reading to be donated to the classroom exchange box. From March 1-March 10, students can give books and also take some new books to enjoy from the book box. Any books remaining in the box on March 10 will be donated to children in need of books! We are planning on reaching out to Koinonia, which supports local foster youth. 

Next, we will be running a classroom coin drive competition, "Coins for a Cause".  Classrooms will be competing to collect the most loose change in their collection buckets. The classroom with the most $ collected will be awarded a prize and money will be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation. 

 More updates and information will be provided throughout the month. We are looking forward to a fun month of giving back together. :)
