Community Contributers!

Recently our class has participated in two charitable projects. 

One project is our Clynk for Cromwell project. The Cromwell Center is dedicated to educating the community on disability awareness. The center came to Great Falls this winter and led third through fifth graders in an interactive class where they learned about different disabilities and discussed accepting differences. Click here to read Allison and Kayleigh's post. 
Following this visit Quentin Wise, from Mrs. McAllister's class, contacted The Cromwell Center asking how he could help raise money for the center. This is how Clynk for Cromwell was born. 4th and 5th graders will be taking home Clynk bags and filling them with returnable bottles and cans. The money will go to the Cromwell Center's Clynk account! 

As some of you may know, Mrs. McAllister has a son with autism. She and her family participate in the Annual Walk for Autism that benefits The Autism Society of Maine. The walk is Sunday, April 27. We also have students affected by autism in our class and we have learned a lot about autism this year. 
The students on the McAllister/Tibbitts team collected change for Mrs. M's walk for a couple of weeks and raised $40 for The Autism Society of Maine!

It is so nice to have such generous and giving students on our team!
