Student leaders from MBS have formed a “posse” to roundup some change to support the Vermont Children’s Hospital. Fifth graders Isabella Bledsoe, Erin Yarnell, Addie Trahan, Mackenna Wirtz, and Emma Alter are responsible for promoting the roundup and collecting the change jars at the end of each day. The students made posters and use the school intercom to make announcements. The “roundup” at MBS will continue through February 18th.
On February 5th, the entire school participated in “Hat Day” in honor of preschool student Sawyer Josey. Sawyer has had his own personal experiences with the Vermont Children’s Hospital. Students at MBS donated change in order to wear a hat in school. In addition, the principals have donated two $25 gift cards for Skida hats that will be raffled off on Friday, February 12th.
The MBS “posse” will visit the Vermont Children’s Hospital in March to deliver the MBS donation. The students set a goal of $400.00, but early results indicate they may exceed this goal!
