First grade students at Cardington-Lincoln Elementary School continued a tradition when they packed gifts for children overseas in their annual service project, “Operation Christmas Child.”
The students filled 115 boxes with school supplies, hygiene items and toys.
Earlier these first graders held an “Adjective Fashion Show” to help students learn about adjectives by dressing up in their finest attire and they took turns commentating, using adjectives to describe their peer’s outfits.
In October, the fire department visited with the Fire Safety House and engines to demonstrate safety.
In addition to packing the shoe boxes this month the students celebrated the holiday with “Toothpick Thanksgiving” with each student contributing bite-size morsels to share with their classmates.
The students participated in a drawing contest for Veterans Day, drawing a picture of what this day meant to them. A winner was selected from each grade level and they had their photo taken with the veterans along with their art work. The contest entries were judged by veterans from each branch of the military.
First grade team members are Melissa Deems, Marie Free, Kathy Gardner Diane Tucker and Ashley Volk.
