To close out the 2014 calendar year, the students in Jen’s 2/3 and Chris’ grade 5 learning groups focused on the joy of giving and appreciating all that we already have. The students worked together to provide warmth for those in need. Both classes collected t-shirts and upcycled them into scarves. Students created 43 scarves that were donated to Emily’s Hats for Hope, a local organization started by a 17-year-old Morristown student.
