Kindergarten Students Earn a Ride on the Polar Express!

In November, Principal Mrs. April Reynolds gave the students of Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center a goal. Their goal was to bring in 600 cans of non-perishable items to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. Their prize – a pajama day and a whole school showing of “The Polar Express!”

All month long, Nurse Kelly Hostetler and Mrs. Jane Henry collected, counted, and kept track of how many items were donated. The totals were announced on the intercom so that students could hear their progress.

Nurse Kelly and Mrs. Henry are proud to announce that the students not only met their goal, but they more than doubled it! To date, the amount collected is 1,145. With a few more days to donate, we couldn’t prouder of our students as they make a difference in the lives of others.

One of our school rules is “Take care of others.” Our students are truly living out the words they recite every morning.
