First Graders Participate in Project Linus

This week first graders at Elementary South participated in “Project Linus”. Project Linus is a national, all-volunteer organization that donates handmade blankets to critically ill and traumatized children.  Since 1995, Project Linus has donated over 5,000,000 blankets to children all over the country. Our classes took part in the Kids Helping Kids Program. This program was started in 2001 and encourages children to give back to the community by comforting children in crisis.
