There is nothing we love more than kids helping kids!

Middle school students at First Baptist Church School have been filling piggy banks to donate to the Gingerbread House and presented their donation yesterday during Patriot Promise after Gingerbread House CEO Jessica Milan Miller spoke to the group on the importance of service and volunteer work. Students raised a total of $1,690.46 to help child abuse victims at the Gingerbread House!!

Mrs. Flint's Kindergarten Busy Bears spent the first 100 days of school crossing out a piece of popcorn for each day. When the chart was completed, they celebrated with all things popcorn. They read popcorn books, counted out 100 popcorn kernels and 100 pieces of popped popcorn and weighed and made popcorn comparisons on a platform scale and on a balance scale. Of course, eating popcorn was a big part of the celebration. The Bears tasted eight different kinds of popcorn, chose their favorite then ate until they were 100% FULL!
