Operation Christmas Child!
Today during class and chapel we talked about Operation Christmas Child. What it is, you might ask? Well here is a link to their website. I also sent home some forms today.
Together as an entire 3rd grade we are going to pack a shoe-box for 2 children in need around the world! One box will be for a girl between the ages of 5-9 and another will be for a boy between the ages of 5-9. The girls (from both 3.1 and 3.2 class) will collect items for the girl's shoe-box and the boys (from both 3.1 and 3.2 class) will collect for the boy's shoe-box.If you cannot supply an item that is completely fine!
