Bennet Caring Team 2019!
Bennet Elementary Caring Project has been completed for the 2019 school year! This year the team picked a wonderful charity to support. The Bennet Caring Team gathered donations for the Capital Humane Society during the weeks of February 18th – March 1st. The 6th grade Student Council students used over two weeks of recesses for the project. They planned a pep rally to kick off the weeks, and they gathered and counted all the donations daily. Our school goal was to gather 400 items. We counted over 100 donated items on the first day! The caring Team and our school were very excited! By the end of week one we reached over 400 items donated. That did not stop the Bennet families; our donations kept coming. Our grand total was over 750 items and $380.00 donated. Donation items included pet food, animal toys, little critter supplies, cleaning supplies and other items.
On March 5th, the 6th Grade Student Council loaded a bus with all of the donations and headed to the Capital Humane Society. After loading all donations using the floor and seats, we had a total of 10 seats left to take the students. At CHS, we unloaded the donations, had an educational lesson, toured the building and asked questions of the director. This project was a huge undertaking for our 6th grade Caring Team. Thank you to all of our District OR 1 families that helped make it a huge success! Bennet Elementary students and families can make a difference.
