Third grade had another busy day of giving and learning about local ministries. After collecting canned goods for the last three weeks, students walked their food donations to the Hyde Park Food Pantry. We were amazed at what two third grade classes were able to give Austinites in need!
This afternoon we learned about two local ministries. Happy Birthdays shared that foster children don’t get birthday parties like we do. We learned that we can donate party items and gifts in a decorated box to provide a birthday party for a child. You can learn more at http://www.sharinghappybirthdays.org. Third grade also learned about an organization called Footprints. We learned that sometimes kids are having a hard time and need extra kindness and support. You can learn more at http://www.fpcgm.org.
Tomorrow we will learn more about the Philippines and practice our chapel presentation for Thursday.
