Spreading Warmth This Season

Throughout the month of December, elementary students in the district learned the value of giving back by working together to make the holidays a little brighter for those less fortunate. Students throughout the district took part in the annual Mitten Tree drive, in which they decorated a tree with mittens, gloves, hats and scarves. The items were then donated to those in the community in need of warm winter wear.

The initiative began eight years ago when school nurse Jennifer Autera shared the idea at Tooker Avenue Elementary School.
