CREW FOCUS FOR DECEMBER: KINDNESS
A kind word can warm three winter months. --Japanese proverb
This month the students have been working on spreading kindness within the classroom, school, and the greater community. The students and staff have been passing out hearts when they see acts of kindness. The hearts are covering the Grinches in our school! Ask your child what the different colored hearts mean!
KINDNESS IN OUR COMMUNITY
In honor of the OMPS kindness initiative, Mrs. Hague’s fourth grade students thought it would be great to give back to the community. The students decided to make ornaments and sell them at the Winter Concert, and donate the money to Safe Harbor
in Traverse City. The class sold over 40 ornaments, and some students donated their own money. The students’ smiles and enthusiasm during the making, selling and counting the money received was electric! In all, the class collected and donated $143.70!
Next week, students at OMPS have the opportunity to contribute to making a better world by sharing with others. The PTO is holding a food drive to support the Traverse City High School Food Pantry. Dry and canned goods, personal care items (e.g., toothpaste/toothbrush, shampoo/conditioner, soap, lip balm), diapers, hats, and mittens are all needed. The students may bring in the items from Monday through Thursday December 17 - 20.
