Classroom 1, (three & four-year-old classroom) chose to focus their Community Service Week activities around learning what firemen and police officers do for our community. Some friends even dressed up to celebrate. They worked together on an art project to give to our local police officers to say "Thank You" for protecting our community!
Classroom 6, (two-year-old classroom) chose to focus their Community Service Week activities around caring for animals. While flexing their creative muscles pretending to care for pets in the classroom and decorating boxes for donations and honing their empathy skills, the class collected pet food to donate to Winston Wishes, a Hampton Roads charity that helps pet owners living in the Hampton Roads Area during times of need with pet food and supplies. Winston The Cat himself came into the classroom to accept the donations and meet the kids!
Classroom 8, (one-year-old classroom) focused on sharing, books and reading for Community Service Week. They asked all The New E3 School families to donate used books and have created a community library in our Kiva for all of our classrooms to use. The children helped set up the new library and had story time there to celebrate a job well done!
