On November 14, the Myers Elementary had an assembly to get the ball rolling for Stockings for Troops, a service project where elementary students stuff stockings with all sorts of great stuff, from candy and snacks to playing cards.
The students will be stuffing the stockings on December 2.
“I love this project because it affords elementary students the opportunity to have hands-on participation serving others,” said Myers Principal Dr. Terri Harpster.
This is the sixth year Myers Elementary has participated in this project.
The program started before the assembly with a jeans day for the teachers. Each teacher wore jeans for the day for a $5 donation. Donations will continue to be accepted from November 14-30.
Myers participates in this service project in partnership with Military Families Ministry and prioritizes service men and women connected to local families as the recipients of the stockings. If one service member of a unit receives a stocking then the whole unit gets a stocking.
During the assembly Mr. Wolfe got the third and fourth graders to sing God Bless America and other patriotic songs.
