Students celebrated Buddy Day on Monday afternoon. Lower and Middle School students came together to make new friends as they worked together to create an outreach project. This semester’s project was to create a beautiful bouquet of tissue paper flowers to be placed in a hand-colored pot. These cheerful decorations will be donated to Meals on Wheels, a non-profit organization that helps homebound individuals.
Volunteers who work for Meals on Wheels provide meals and small gifts to the homebound individuals. Imagine the smiles that will surely surface when their clients receive a student-created flower pot filled with colorful tissue paper flowers! In creating a small craft project, our students have made a big and lasting difference to those who are in less fortunate circumstances.
The Director of Volunteer Services of Meals on Wheels visited the Middle School last week to share information about the organization. Middle Schoolers also learned how to make the flower project so that they could lead their Lower School buddies.
Mr. Ray O. Sunshine, who most students thought looked an awful lot like Mr. Shep, visited classrooms as students worked on the project to share jokes. After many laughs and completing the flower pots, students were treated to a special snack—dirt pudding.
