Our November Starfish projects all support Veterans and members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Color a Smile
Rose Tree students will be decorating “Happy Thanksgiving” pictures for the non- profit organization called Color A Smile. This organization has sent over one million cards and pictures to senior citizens, military families, and anyone in need of a smile.
Stockings for Soldiers
We will once again be supporting a community project called Stockings For Soldiers who send holiday stockings to soldiers who are away from home over the holidays. The purpose of this project is to remind these brave men and women that they are being thought of while they are away from home and their families.
As we have been recognizing Veterans this month, we are inviting the Rose Tree Community to contribute items that can be used to stuff stockings. Some of the items that are most in demand include: granola/fruit/breakfast bars, cookies/nuts/pretzels/trail mix, flavored drink mixes, Slim Jims/beef jerky, Ramen Noodles, toothbrushes and small tubes of toothpaste, razors and paperback books.
Please consider donating an item or two to our collection. We will have collection boxes positioned near the bus entrance at school. Our students will be decorating holiday cards to send in along with our school’s contribution to the Stockings For Soldiers project.
