Coats, Hats, Mittens and More by Jennifer Carcich

Unity is a community of caring which reaches beyond our walls and into the greater community. Throughout the Month of October, our entire school worked together to collect new, or clean used coats, for the Market Street Mission annual Coat Give a Way on the Morristown Green. This event is always held the first Saturday in November.

On October 15th, all of the children in grades K-4 sorted and tallied a portion of the donated coats and winter-wear. Each learning group then added their information to the school graph. Students were then able to solve real world math problems from the data.

Tallying the Donations

The school collected over 100 coats for those in need and will be sending middle school students and teachers to help distribute coats on the Green at the event.
