Helping Hands

posted Oct 15, 2013, 4:32 PM by Susan Dufraine

Dear Center Families,


In the spirit of teaching our students about the importance of Community Service, we will begin a yearlong effort to feed those in need of assistance.


Center School Helping Hands will be a school –wide effort to provide our students an opportunity to work as grade level teams to make a difference by making sandwiches to help feed the hungry.


Here’s how it will work:


1.     SCHEDULE:

Each grade level will be assigned a month to meet one morning in the cafeteria at 7:50 AM to make sandwiches with their grade level team.  The students will go directly to their classrooms at 8:30.


Mark your calendars with the following Wednesdays:


October 16th       5th grade

November 13th   4th grade

December 11th   3rd grade

January 15th       2nd grade

February 12th     1st grade

March 12th          kindergarten



Each family may voluntarily send in with your child sandwich meat, cheese, and bread to make sandwiches on their designated day. We suggest 1lb. meat; ½ lb. cheese; two loaves of bread, although any donated amount is appreciated. The number of sandwiches delivered each month will depend on donations.


Condiments and baggies will be supplied. Thanks to the Big Y and CVS in the Shops for their one time donations.


3.     WHO MAY COME:

Siblings are more than welcome to make sandwiches too. For example, our first date (October 16th) will be with 5th graders. If you have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader, feel free to send the 2nd grader to help.  The more helping hands the better!!



Parent Mrs. Amy Nedwed is coordinating this effort. She and I will be present with the students while they make the sandwiches; and Mrs. Nedwed will deliver the sandwiches to Loaves and Fishes Kitchen in Springfield. Kudos to Amy for spearheading the effort!!


Thank-you for your generous spirit of giving!  A reminder notice will be sent each month.


With appreciation,

Donna Hutton, Principal
