Dear Wrightwood families,
As we head into 2023, I am especially proud of the generosity and thoughtfulness behind Wrightwood Elementary's mission to serve others. In October, we collected and donated over 700 pairs of socks to the needy, and in December, in partnership with The Jessie Rees Foundation (https://negu.org/), our Joy Drive will provide the needed items to build JoyJars that will be donated to children fighting cancer in hospitals. In the spring, we will deliver handmade Valentine's cards to our local senior citizens, and we'll round out the year with an animal awareness drive for our four-legged friends.
We all know that giving to others benefits everyone. By giving our students the opportunity and structure to contribute to community service projects, we are instilling in them the desire to help others who are less fortunate, and we show them the power they have to make the world a better place.
Thank you to all our Raccoon families for their caring and generous hearts.
