With the Thanksgiving and the holiday season fast approaching, what better time for children to learn the rewarding lesson of how to give back? With this in mind, we’re celebrating our many families and staff members across the country who have encouraged children to do good in their communities. Here are just a few of the heartwarming examples of how Primrose students have made a difference:
Delivering Gifts to Families in Need
Primrose School of Pflugerville at Falcon Pointe participated in a “Adopt a Cottage” program at a local children’s home during the holiday season. Pre-K students took a field trip to help deliver the gifts and visited the mothers and children in their homes.
Holiday Gifts for the Homeless
Kindergarteners at Primrose School of Dublin teamed up with their teachers to provide much-needed gifts for homeless individuals in their community. Using money donated by Primrose staff and families, students took a shopping trip to purchase toys, blankets, clothing and other necessities for a local nonprofit. They then helped box, wrap and send the gifts for families to receive before the holiday season.
Spreading Holiday Cheer to Neighbors
Students from Primrose School of Copperfield set out to spread positivity and holiday cheer while venturing around the neighborhood to sing carols, give out treats and share high fives! We know they made the holiday season a little brighter for everyone they visited.
Sending Thanksgiving Cards to the Military
Children at Primrose School of Buford and Primrose School of Gainesville made Thanksgiving cards to show their appreciation to troops overseas. The schools submitted letters to The Bert Show’s Big Thank You to send some love to military men and women who are away from home during the holiday season.
Primrose School of Keller wanted to motivate students to give back to their community in a fun, engaging way. The School Director created “Generosity Bucks,” a program where Preschool and Pre-K students were rewarded “bucks” for practicing positive character skills, like sharing with others. Students then took a field trip to a local grocery store and redeemed their “bucks” to purchase food for families in need.
Visits to “Adopted Grandparents”
Students in the Pre-Kindergarten classroom at Primrose School of Legacy took a field trip to a local assisted living facility. The children did crafts with “adopted grandparents” and brought handmade cards, fleece blankets and lots of smiles.
