From Hand to Hand


Dear Parents and Students of the Elementary School,

Our food drive for the Children’s Inn was another big success! Thanks to your generous donations we received a large quantity of food items. The students of grades 1-4 then passed on the food items from hand to hand in a long line that reached from the Elementary School library, across the courtyard, and all the way to the parking lot. At the end of the line the donations were put into large bags and loaded into a car. All participating students were very motivated and enthusiastic. It was a joy to see the students collaborating and working together for such a great cause at the beginning of this holiday season.

The food items were received at the Children’s Inn with much appreciation and gratitude. The staff was impressed with the amount of items our students and parents had donated. The organization was also very thrilled with the „Happy Thanksgiving” card that was prepared by our students with care and dedication.

A big thank-you to all the parents who donated countless food items and to all teachers and students who contributed to this success!

We hope that you also enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. On behalf of the Elementary School, I wish you all a wonderful holiday season!
