SAS Middle School students help spearhead Operation Christmas Child
From November 1st through the 14th 2016, the SAS Middle School participated in Operation Christmas Child, which provides aid to people in need. Each November thousands of groups and individual donors prepare and collect shoe boxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal items, and other small gifts. Middle school students collected these items for boys and girls ages 2-14. On November 14th, students in Student Leadership Club packed the shoe boxes full of items for children in other countries. These boxes will then be shipped and distributed to over 100 countries through national teams of volunteers who are connected locally to the children receiving the gifts. The students who donated brought those items in to their homeroom teacher. The club was able to make 35 shoe boxes with all of the donations. This was also a competition among homerooms, and Ms. Hutchinson's 5-A won with 225 total items! Congratulations and thank to all who participated!
