Country Day School First Graders Participate in the Jared Box Project

As a culminating project for their humanities unit on communities, Country Day School first grade students in Elizabeth Grover, Bethany Knicely and Amanda Peterman's classes participated in the Jared Box Project. This community service project provides elementary-aged children in the hospital with fun and engaging activities in decorated boxes, sent with a personal note.

The first grade class asked families in each grade at Country Day to bring in different items to fill the Jared Boxes, from coloring supplies, stickers, toy cars, Play-Doh, crafts, Legos and puzzles. First graders then assembled and decorated the boxes and wrote notes to go inside, and will send them off to brighten a child's day. Together, the first grade classes assembled 46 Jared Boxes!

Well done, first grade!
