Mrs. Mitchell's first and second grade class is constructing fleece blankets for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in the northeast. For inspiration they needed to look no further than the school's motto.
"Heart of education is the education of the heart. This is that exact definition. Mrs. Mitchell is teaching her kids that its Christmas time, we need to give something. Who better to receive a gift than people who have lost pretty much everything." said Jennifer Clark, who will deliver the blankets a few days before Christmas.
Clark is a native of the Northeast and plans to deliver the blankets when she and her family travel to see relatives.
