Teachers wrapping gifts

Wrapping Gifts for a Good Cause

For Monday’s Aprendiendo Jugando (Learning While Playing) party, teachers at the School of Dual Language gave up some of their time after school one day to wrap the hundreds of gifts that generous families donated to make the holidays a little more special for the AJ students.

Food Drive Gives Back to the Community

Fourth and fifth grade students who volunteered to be part of the Project Change program enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community. Early in the morning of December 5, approximately 50 students went from floor to floor at Townline and the School of Dual Language, collecting boxes of nonperishable food items and supplies, such as toothpaste and pancake mix, from approximately 38 classrooms. They piled the items into a truck bound for the Sharing Hands Food Pantry. The items will go to community members in need. Many thanks to all the families at both schools that provided items for the food drive, which began in mid-November.
