Our first grade students at Howard Elementary put their Social Studies lesson into action this year. As they studied their unit on basic Needs and Wants they decided to help provide the basic need of clothing to someone less fortunate. The first grade students from Mrs. Adams’ and Mrs. Korte’s classes collected over 150 new warm hats, gloves and socks for homeless men and women in the Detroit area. These items will be distributed next week at a facility that will be housing and feeding the homeless for a week. The students have shared from their hearts and are excited to know that they are able to put their learning into action in such an important way. Thank you, first grade families!
In December, the Howard School students participated in the annual Gleaner’s Canned Food Drive. After one week of giving, students had donated over 2,200 cans of food for people in our community. They did a great job and helped a lot of people. Thank you to the Student Council, Mrs. Caito and Mrs. Fleming for organizing and coordinating the event this year. The Howard School community is the best!!!
