LINDEN AVENUE SCHOOL

THANK YOU, LINDEN AVENUE SCHOOL!

November 10-14th, Little Hands Connected joined hands with the Linden Community Service Committee to organize "A WEEK OF THANKS" for the students of Linden Avenue School.  During the week, students focused on what it means to be thankful and were provided different opportunities to give back in their community.  All of the food & monetary donations collected will benefit the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair, and their efforts to feed over 700 families who are looking to them for assistance this Thanksgiving. Here is how your "Little Hands" did BIG things, LAS!


"A WEEK OF THANKS"

and Giving...


Here is how your "Little Hands" did BIG things, Linden!


MONDAY: "ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE" You discussed what it means to be thankful! You were then given paper leaves to write down what YOU are thankful for! Those leaves of thankful thoughts are now hanging on Trees of Gratitude and are displayed near the gym in Linden for all to see & appreciate!

TUESDAY: "ART FROM THE HEART"  You were given the opportunity to color "Happy Thanksgiving" pages.  Your art will be given to the Human Needs Food Pantry to pack in the grocery bags they will be giving out this Thanksgiving.

WEDNESDAY: "DONATION DAY!" You were asked to bring in (non-expired!) non- perishable Thanksgiving donations.  Each class discussed the Thanksgiving meal, the different items they donated, and who those donations will be helping.  Your generous donations filled approximately 100 bags!

THURSDAY: "DON'T BE A TURKEY - WEAR PAJAMAS!" You wore your Pajamas for a $1 donation, OR donation of your choice! Your generous donations are still being counted! As soon as we get the exact total, we will post how much money you raised! All monetary donations will be used to purchase Thanksgiving Turkey's and non-perishables.

FRIDAY: "DONATION &  TURKEY TALLY DAY!"  On Friday, the First Grade students sorted & bagged donations! STAY CONNECTED... The LAS TURKEY TALLY TOTAL, AND DONATION CONTEST WINNERS will be announced SOON! The winning class will be awarded a special theme day (crazy hair, pajama day, etc)
to be decided with their teacher!
