Sixth graders present 7th Annual Project Read to Little Tigers

FMS sixth graders were excited to present the 7th Annual "Project Read" projects for the RAS Little Tigers.

The sixth graders really put some "heart work” into this end-of-year community service project, truly embracing the effort to encourage and inspire Little Tigers with their friendly "inspirational" letters and bookmarks. Over 70 picture books were donated to first grade teachers' classroom libraries.

FMS sixth grade students either donated a book from their personal collections or chose a book they liked from our bin of previously donated picture books. RAS teachers also chose to generously send their first graders home with books to add to their own home libraries!

Mrs. Higgins, first grade teacher, reported that her students were "so excited" to receive the gifts from the sixth graders, and one sixth grade student, Arson H., commented, "I was starting to lose my faith in humanity, but since I heard about the bookmarks and letters I regained it!" This clever, witty reflection is a testament that taking the time to make a difference in the world around us not only impacts others positively, but also gives us a sense of hope and purpose! Hats off to these impressive difference makers!

Tip for the summer: Find small ways to make the world around you a better place, and you will be better for it, too!
