On Friday November 10th, Lizz Maxwell, a Site Coordinator from Gigi's Playhouse came and spoke to Mrs. Hvizdos' and Mrs. Peter's second grade classrooms. The 2nd graders had organized a doughnut sale in October as a culminating activity for their Economics unit. The classes made over $200 and then voted to send part of the proceeds to Gigi's Playhouse, an organization in Lakewood that focuses supporting children with Down Syndrome. Ms. Maxwell talked about the importance of being part of what that organization terms, "Generation G." Generation G is the generation that will treat others with kindness and respect, valuing differences.
The students voted to send the other half of the money earned to help support the K-9 Unit at the Lakewood Police Department. The K-9 Unit will be visiting the classrooms as a thank you on November 28th!
