Dear Coloma Families,
Coloma Elementary and Intermediate schools continue to encourage and embrace a message of kindness and compassion throughout our campus, and among our student body and staff. As part of our ongoing efforts to teach and model kindness, we are consciously focusing on the message of kindness and compassion which equips students and adults to create and sustain a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment essential for academic achievement.
In order to promote kindness and compassion within the school and community, specifically this holiday season, we are encouraging participation in a collaborative KINDNESS and COMPASSION DRIVE from Monday, November 21st through Friday, December 9th. Items we will be collecting include:
- NEW unwrapped toys, gift cards, and cash donations
will benefit the Mosaic Wonderland Toy Store, providing parents in financial crisis a way to shop for their children for Christmas (see reverse side for a detailed shopping guide).
- Non-perishable food and personal care items
will be donated to Hope Resources (see reverse side for suggested donations).
- New or gently used winter coats and
- Waterproof winter gear (waterproof snow gloves, snow boots, and snow pants)
will benefit our students who are without weather appropriate snow gear.
We hope that you will join us and support our goal of 100% participation in any way that you are able. We hope that this will provide students with an opportunity to experience extending kindness and compassion through giving. Thank you so much!
