Jefferson First Graders Share at Grace Village

Jefferson first-graders enriched the lives of others by sharing some Thanksgiving songs and poems with residents at Grace Village Retirement Community on Monday, November 24th. After the performance, students got to share in some "cookie-eating" with their new friends.

Jefferson Students Deliver Thanksgiving Joy

Today sixteen Jefferson Spartans (two Family Groups) enriched the lives of residents at Grace Village Retirement Community by delivering turkey decorations that were made by the entire student body. While GV residents were visibly delighted with the turkeys, they were even more thrilled to see the young faces and interact briefly with our students.

The children were treated to cookies in the dining room and even had the pleasure of singing "Happy Birthday" to a 93-year-old resident.

Mr. Carter (principal), Mrs. Steiner (librarian), Miss Gill (5th grade), and Mrs. Propp (Tech) accompanied the group.

November 2014 Newsletter Article

An important aspect of Warsaw Community Schools’ Mission is focused outward: “enriching the lives of others.” As we approach the holiday season, I am so incredibly thankful to be a member of a community that takes the time to help others.

As most of you know, Jefferson Elementary students are members of Family Groups. Each “family” is made up of one to two students from each grade level. Our 6th graders lead these groups through a variety of activities that not only enrich the lives of each other, but also members of our local community. During the month of October, Family Groups met to decorate pumpkins as storybook characters. These pumpkins were then donated to Combined Community Services, where they found homes in many places around the Warsaw/Winona Lake area.

Another way we are working to enrich the lives of others is through our annual Food Drive. During the week of November 3rd-7th, we will collect canned/non-perishable food items to be donated to local food pantries. The classroom that collects the most items will receive a special prize. The week will end with our annual Dodgeball Tournament at Lakeview Middle School. Staff and 6th-grade students will compete against our friends at Lincoln, Leesburg, and Harrison. (Jefferson took 1st place last year!) Admission is two canned/non-perishable food items per person. For every two items donated at the game, a raffle ticket will be earned for a variety of door prizes. This is always an enjoyable night for an amazing cause. We hope to see you there to support Jefferson and our greater community!
