Blankets for the Homeless

An SMS enrichment class tied knots in fleece blankets as a way to show kindness to the homeless. At the beginning of the year the school surveys parents regarding the skills and talents they would be willing to share with the students. Mrs. Karen Manning, a former teacher, organizes the after school mini-classes.

Older students were paired with younger students in the fleece blanket class taught by Jennifer Goodall, a parent volunteer. The students ranged in age from kindergarten through eighth grade.
