Wiggle Wobble Learn! Support Woodmere Students with Donors Choose!
About the Project from Ms. Breen at Woodmere Elementary School: My students are currently making their hard metal chairs wobble chairs and their actions are telling us what they need! These requested chairs will help them be able to move their bodies in ways they need to in order to focus on the learning they have been so desperately missing in person. This also helps with social distancing and anxiety, as many students feel nervous with school not feeling the same as they are 2 years older and the world has changed. These chairs are easy to move and easy to sanitize. Even the hexagon seat is fun to slide your hands on!
Spread the word to ghosts and goblins far and wide that the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association is haunting the Brentwood-Darlington Community Center on October 22nd, 2017, 4:00-7:00PM. Bring your costumes to wear and some to share for the costume exchange. Fun, games, food (bring some to share, if you can!), and a Trunk-or-Treat make this FREE family-friendly event a must! Everyone is welcome, regardless of neighborhood! RSVP to our event on Facebook!
Join your neighbors for some safe and spooky fun at the 2nd Annual Kids Halloween Night Event, hosted by the Women of the Moose and the Loyal Order of the Moose. With face painting, goodies, a maze, and more, this non-alcoholic, family-friendly event is sure to have more treats than tricks! Event will be held at Moose Lodge #291 on October 31st from 5-9pm.
There are SMART students at Woodmere and Whitman Elementary schools waiting to be read with!
Volunteer to read with SMART® (Start Making A Reader Today) for one hour a week! As a SMART volunteer, you’ll read one-on-one with kindergarten through third-grade students each week from mid-October through mid-May. The consistent, one-on-one time helps build literacy skills and self-confidence. SMART further encourages children to read outside the classroom by giving students new books each month to take home and keep.
Want to do more to support SMART at Whitman? We are looking for a leadership volunteer to help us co-coordinate the program. Without that support, we might not be able to serve the children at Whitman this year. Are you the person we’re looking for? Or do you know someone that might be? Let us know!
