Students from Mrs. Wetmore-Simpson's 5th grade class brought in all sorts of treats for the Crozet firefighters that were then taken in a large basket. They also brought small stuffed animals for children who have lost their toys in fires. In addition, the students made beautiful valentines for the firefighters. These students delivered the items personally, as seen in the photo.
The MLS PTO is launching a new initiative this year called "Bluebirds Care." As you heard from Dr. Irani at Back to School Night, one of the strategic goals for our school community is to develop empathy in our students. The "Bluebirds Care" program is designed to help give wings to this idea, enabling our students to be directly involved in giving back to our greater community.
