North Elementary School Practices Generosity And Giving To The Community
North Elementary School third graders held a toy drive for the Altamont Fire Department in place of a Christmas gift exchange. Students were given the opportunity to show their donated gift to their classmates, share why they chose to donate it, and explain how it would make another child happy. They donated more than 30 toys and experienced the powerful gift of giving.
North Elementary School also held a food drive to benefit the Grundy County Food Bank. Students were encouraged to give a little to help a lot. Over a three-day period, they collected more than 450 food items as well as over $125. North Elementary faculty and staff would like to thank all who generously donated to make the food drive a huge success.
