Thank you to our room parents and teachers for all of the wonderful service projects they organized for "Bluebirds Care" during our class Halloween parties. Our kids made thank you notes for city, county, and UVA police departments, thank you notes for fire fighters, birthday cards for Meals on Wheels recipients, beautifully decorated "heart rocks" to be delivered to cancer patients at Martha Jefferson Hospital, and fleece blankets to be delivered to senior citizens at Home Instead.

Our children learned about each of these organizations at their respective parties. We hope that during their celebrating, they were able to expand their empathy and broaden their understanding of other people's experiences, jobs, and the way that so many help in our community.

Students in Mr. Hicks' and Ms. Kuhn's classes made thank-you cards for police officers:
