Birthday Wishes: Collection of Birthday Supplies:
The celebration of a child's birthday is such a special moment. Our first graders are once again taking the lead in our collection of birthday celebration supplies to share with our neighbors via St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP). Birthdays are celebrated in a variety of ways by our beautifully diverse community. Items include rice, noodles, kosher and halal foods, cake mixes (including gluten free), frosting, and paper products.
Donations can be placed on our blue "Sharing Shelf" located near gym C, or delivered to classrooms. Questions? Contact LS Chaplain Nan Zosel.
Box Tops for Education
We redeem boxtops once a year to fund student led Philanthropy Projects. Our 2019 projects include supporting access to music for elders, Special Olympics/Unified Sports, Pinky Swear, U of M Children's Hospital, the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, and mental health resources for teens in Tanzania.
Collection containers are located near the Lower/Middle School Entrance and Upper School Room U109.
Thank you, and THINK PINK!
