Quilts Presented to Salvation Army's Women's Auxillary
Over the past several weeks, our second graders and their teachers have been working diligently on a very special project to help those in need in Oklahoma City.
Last year Mrs. Vick, who helms the Lower Division Launchpad, learned from a friend of hers in the Salvation Army's Women's Auxiliary that there isa great need for blankets in the homeless shelter run by the Salvation Army.
When they heard of this need, the second grade team decided that there could be no better way for the second graders to learn about service to others and selflessness. They took on the project of producing as many quilts and blankets as they could to donate to the shelter.
The faculty wanted to help the students see the project as more than just a fun craft project and realize that the time they were spending could impact someone's life. To do that, the teachers read "The Quiltmaker's Gift" by Jeff Brumbeau and Gail de Marcken before the project began.
With the assistance of generous parent volunteers, second graders cut fabric, sewed, and assembled quilts to donate to the Salvation Army.
On Monday, Dec. 9, the second grade presented their completed work to representatives of the Salvation Army, who were overjoyed by the large quantity of quilts produced.
