Our classrooms at Shellsburg Elementary worked together to collect over 1,000 toiletry items for the Food Share Pantry as part of a recent community service project. All classes from pre-school to fifth grade were invited to donate full-size toiletries items from November 26 to December 7. Thanks to the great support from our students and their parents we received donations from every classroom! Ms. Stolen’s 3-year-old preschool class and Mr. Meyer’s 5th-grade class are sharing the prize for donating the most items. The pre-school class has chosen to have an ice cream party while the fifth graders will be enjoying a pizza party.
Around 300 items were donated last year when the two preschool and kindergarten classes participated in the first year of the project. Thanks to Jane Stolen and Angela Sagan (school counselor) for organizing this year’s event and expanding it for all the Shellsburg Elementary classrooms. #vscsd #vsproud
