December has given KCC much to be thankful for as we welcome the holidays!
HOLIDAY BAKING KITS – Our “Holiday Baking Kit” project allowed us to handcraft 70 goodie bags that our students gifted to HCS families during recent pantry hours. Bags included cake & cookie mix, frosting, cupcake liners & cookie cutters. A special thanks to Kramer Foods for donating the cake mix boxes, and to the D181 Foundation for awarding us a grant to fund a portion of this project.
WE CAN! – December marked the conclusion of our “We Can!” aluminum can recycling drive. Thank you to Republic Services for donating the blue recycling bin over the past months, and for all the Oak families & teachers who helped fill our bags and supported our green initiative. Recycling proceeds will be used for a future project chosen by our students.
BUCK-A-BOOK – As you sift through new & old books over break, please consider saving & donating some to our January book drive (1/7-1/15). Books collected will be resold to Oak students during “Buck-A-Book” sale days, and proceeds will help fund celebratory “5th Grade Events” for our upcoming graduates.
A million thanks, and warmest wishes for a happy holiday season…xoxo!
