After discussing empathy and compassion in guidance, our fifth graders decided to plan a service project.  Collectively, they organized a Pajama Drive.  The Pajama Program partners with Scholastic each year to help elementary children reach out to kids who are less fortunate.  Our Bobcats' donations will reach over 20 local children facing instability.  They will provide, with a match from Scholastic, a book to go with these pajamas, in hopes of creating a peaceful bedtime routine.  We are proud of these students giving hearts! Tweet to us at @nmbobcats and tell us how you are showing empathy during this holiday season!
