Thanksgiving Thoughtfulness

Ms. James' 2nd grade class wanted to help give back after reading the book How Full is Your Bucket for Kids by Tom Rath, Mary Reckmeyer, and Maurie J. Manning. They decide to make a sandwich for each resident of the Greenville Community Shelter. They created an assembly line where each student had a job in order to make the 82 sandwiches needed for the residents. Students were able to speak with the director of the shelter about their project.
