Service ProjectPublished by stacey.holmes on Fri, 12/02/2011 - 11:54
Second Grade students at Mapleton Elementary are working to complete a special service project for Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City.
Each year students, Moms, Grandmas and Aunts come together to help make hats for the oncology department. So far they have made 35 hats and have cut material for 60 more.
The next part of their project will include the entire school. Students and parents are donating fleece to tie blankets for children at the Medical Center. Then in January our entire school has a day to tie all the quilts with the help of parents and teachers. They will then be taken to Primary Childrens Oncology Department and donated in memory of Anna Nemelka a former student at Mapleton Elementary.
Pictured here working together are Connie Warren (Anna's Grandma) students Reagan Aanerud , Audrey Taylor, and Anna's Mother, Kristy Nemelka. keep up the good work everyone. We're off to a great start!
