On 12/14 Attales sixth grade students will be participating in a service learning project to support Project Linus. Project Linus is an organization that encourages people to make and/or donate blankets to children in need. These children are either fighting medical conditions or are offered a warm and comforting blanket during a time of need. Our students will be utilizing blanket kits to make over 30 blankets which will be donated to Project Linus (South Jersey Division). This project coincides with our ELA unit where students are studying the novel Wonder. We have been discussing empathy, kindness and compassion. Our students are getting to experience the powerful impact of joining together as a team to support children during a time of crisis. Click HERE for more info.
