Today, the goal of group members Jason and Jeffrey was to help out Mrs. Guerra, a first grade teacher, with some simple tasks. They created name tags for each student in the class and tied yarn to each tag so that the kids could wear them around their necks. Other group members Georgia, Sienna, and Gwen helped out kindergarteners in Mrs. Moore’s class by decorating her bulletin board to represent that class’ theme: Superheroes. They spent the entire morning coloring, cutting out, and stapling different shapes to arrange the board while including the names of each child in a creative way. Brock, another helper, looked after Mrs. Brooks’ first grade class while she was out of the room.
Meanwhile, Jasmine worked in Mrs. Buckley’s 4th grade classroom to organize and categorize books. She also colored in our group’s poster which thanked Pillow Elementary for having us. The poster was then passed around to all group members to sign and leave notes to the students. Mrs. Frenzel’s 3rd grade class got some help from group members Ava and Bell with decorating their Olympic board for the upcoming school wide track and field day. Today was a day of preparation, and our group did well working hard with the students to get them ready for tomorrow. At the end of the day, our group had a time of fellowship over lunch at Chili’s. We ask that you pray for our big day tomorrow and the continued strength for our group to finish off the week strong.
