This year, our 5th grade community project is Isaiah 117 House. When children are removed from their homes out of the concern for their welfare, they are usually brought to the Department of Children's Services Offices to await placement with a foster family. They may have to wait hours or days until they are placed. They often have nothing with them and are scared, lonely, hungry, and often have dirty clothing.
Isaiah 117 wants to provide a safe, comforting home while these children wait for placement. It is our hope that we can help these children. We would like to focus on certain items each 9 weeks. During the 1st 9-week period, we collected new or like new stuffed animals. The following list is what we would like to collect the remainder of the school year.
2 nine weeks: New or like new pajamas for all ages
3 nine weeks: New or like new books for all ages
4 nine weeks: School supplies
We appreciate any and all donations during each nine weeks. We anticipate a huge success this year helping this organization that will change the lives of so many children in our area.
Please make sure your child knows what they need to do in case of an early dismissal due to inclement weather. Inform the school office or myself of any changes that need to be made to the early dismissal form that was filled out at the beginning of the year! Our school office # is 753-1175
