While EC students headed out on Mountaineer Mission Day, elementary students served our local community in their own way. Beginning during the liturgical season of Lent, when self-giving and sacrifice help us draw closer to Christ, Mountaineers were invited to make sacrifices and help with chores around the house in order to contribute to their classes projects. At the April spirit assembly, classes presented their projects, and represented from several of the organizations served were present.

  • Preschoolers donated 250 gently-used books to students at a school in Detroit who do not have books to read.
  • Junior kindergarten and kindergarten made toiletry bags for residents at Grace Centers of Hope.
  • First grade collected items for Friends of Foster Kids organization.
  • Second grade made 25 birthday bags for Neighbor to Neighbor to provide birthday party supplies for children in need.
  • Third grade prepared boxes of muffins to be delivered to senior citizens through Meals on Wheels.
  • Fourth grade collected dog supplies and gifts cards to support Blue Star Service Dogs and veterans. It is always a highlight of S.O.C.K.S. day to have a veteran and his or her service dog present.
  • Fifth grade collected supplies for expecting parents for Oxford Pregnancy Center.
