Students in Mrs. Kelsey Luce's second grade class had a wonderful idea a couple of weeks ago. They wanted to show their support for our local Police Department in some way during the September 11th, fifteen year remembrance.
After talking with a contact at the Douglas Police Department, they decided to raise money for Individual First Aid Kits for police officers. These IFAKs have the potential to save the lives of police officers in emergency situations.
After initiating a vote among the entire SWS student population, students decided on two ways to raise funds. They could bring $1 to wear a hat to school, and they could bring $1 for a turn at a "Pie in the Face" Game. Students could bring as many dollars as they wanted for this game, and each dollar would give the student a turn to play. Students were so excited at the possibility of getting to pie their teachers in the face!
Our faculty at ASP/AES and SWS got in on the fun as well! Teachers could pay ten dollars to wear jeans during the week!
So on Friday students could hardly contain their excitement until 1:30 arrived and they could pie their favorite teacher! Enjoy a few slides below of the event!
By the end of the day, Mrs. Luce figured up the funds and declared we had surpassed our goal of $500! We raised $661! This total will pay for six complete IFAKs and one partial one. Mrs. Luce arranged for two police officers, Officer Matthew Burns and Chief Speight, from the Douglas Police Department to come to the school on Monday, September 12, so we could present them with a check. Our entire SWS population gathered to show our support and appreciation for police and what they do for us!
You never know which one of us is going to post here! We are a team of 12 teachers in grades 1-4 who work together to make learning authentic, engaging, challenging, and lasting!
