Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday are fast approaching, and there’s no better season for children to learn the rewarding lesson of how to give back. That’s why we’re celebrating our many families and staff members nationwide who have encouraged children to do good in their communities. Here are just a few of the heartwarming ways that Primrose students have made a difference:
Kindergarten students at Primrose School of Dublin joined forces 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 the Homeless Families Foundation. They boxed, wrapped and sent the gifts for families to receive before the holiday season.
Primrose School at Tatum and other Primrose schools across Arizona worked together to hold a canned food drive for a local nonprofit, benefiting Arizona families in need. By the end of the drive, students and staff collected more than 22,000 cans, providing thousands of meals for families in their state.
Primrose School of Keller’s Director Angie Baliem wanted to motivate students to give back to their community in a fun, engaging way. She created “Generosity Bucks,” a program where Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten 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.
Students from Primrose School of Copperfield had a great time spreading positivity while taking a field trip around the neighborhood to sing carols, hand out treats, and offer lots of high fives! We know they made the holiday season a little brighter for everyone they visited.
Students in the Pre-Kindergarten classroom at Primrose School of Legacy took a field trip to a local assisted living facility. They brought lots of smiles and giggles to the elderly members of their community. They also brought homemade cards and fleece blankets for their “adopted grandparents.”
