The first-graders completed their winter service project on Thursday. The students did extra chores around home to earn the money to purchase fleece material to be made into blankets for the Ronald McDonald house in Rochester. They earned enough money to make 21 blankets. Several parents helped prep the material so that it was ready to be made into blankets. The students did the final step of tying the material to make them to blankets.
Students learned to regroup when adding in math. They will also be learning about the seven continents.
