Two Fun Ways to Support Kevin's Kids
"The Kevin's Kids annual Christmas gift drive is closing in on 40 years of bringing joy to Manchester children and families in need. It started after one child told his teacher "Santa never comes to my house," but that one child — and one man's effort to help — has blossomed into a community-wide effort to make sure every child and family in need has gifts and food for Christmas... This year, with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, the needs are even greater. It's expanded beyond just toys and clothing to providing food as well." (Manchester Patch Dec 3, 2020)
On Monday and Tuesday ot this week (December 7 & 8) MTES students are invited to wear their favorite Holiday Themed Hats to school or during their Class Meetings for a suggested donation of $1.00 to support Kevin's Kids. There will also be an opportunity to guess how many Holiday Hershey's Kisses are in the jar we will have in school for a suggested donation of 25 cents. Closest guess will win a special holiday prize. The winner will be announced on Thursday & Friday, December 10 & 11.
We look forward to seeing all of the festive hats our students will wear. Please feel free to send pictures of your children (to email@example.com) to be included in the 2nd Marking Period Video.
