Nashoba Brooks School Celebrates Morning of Service
On Tuesday, November 20, Nashoba Brooks School students and employees dedicated the morning to service, demonstrating appreciation of their School and the broader community.
During the morning of service, they completed projects focused on thankfulness, helpfulness, empathy, and service to others. The classes worked on a variety of projects. Preschoolers created bird protectors for the School’s windows and cleaned up trash on the playground. Kindergartners worked with fifth graders to package hats and mittens for Cradles to Crayons. Grade 1 students worked with fourth graders to make birthday cards for an organization called Birthday Wishes, which brings joy to homeless children through birthday parties.
Grades 6 and 8 students made fleece blankets chew toys for the Buddy Dog Humane Society. For the past two weeks, Grade 7 students donated specific foods so that they could make kids’ snack bags for Open Table in Concord. Today, they were able to decorate and fill almost 50 bags that will be delivered next week.
We thank the students and employees for their dedication today and their ongoing commitment to our core values.
