'Tis the Season of Giving
Posted 11/23/2010 08:39AM

Warren-Walker School has a long legacy of  embracing community service as an integral part of our school life and curriculum. Giving back and serving others has become pervasive in our school culture.  Past projects have included Walk for Diabetes, Jump for Heart,  hurricane disaster relief in Haiti, Pennies for Peace, Thanksgiving food drives, walks for cancer research, and of course our ongoing partnership with the San Diego River Project.

In a self-effacing spirit of community service, our students have recently helped in the following ways:


~Ms. Wambaugh's Morning Care Crew (PK- 5th) made beautiful Halloween cards, complete with glitter! Ms. Wambaugh delivered the cards with candy to the elderly at Bayside Assisted Living.


~ Mrs. Lattins' 3rd Graders spearheaded a campus-wide food drive to benefit San Diego Food Bank. Students collected approximately 300 cans and boxes of food.  The food collected will be given to needy families to help make their holidays brighter!


~ Ms. Glassman's 3rd Graders joined the First United Methodist Church and raised $500 to buy 60 Thanksgiving turkeys for the San Diego Food Ministry. This will go a long way to the church's goal of funding 100 Thanksgiving food baskets helping provide a hearty Thanksgiving meal to those less fortunate!


~ Ms. Southworth continues in her efforts with Locks off Love by organizing  students,teachers and parents who last spring donated more than 100 inches of hair. Locks of Love is an organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosisMs. Southworth is organizing this year's donors.  The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 1st at 3:00 in Ms. Southworth's room.  The meetings will consist of hair measurements! 

Way to go Gulls for your Spirit off Giving!
