Service Learning - Kids4Kids Parent Ambassadors Needed
West Elementary

 

Please sign up to be a Parent Classroom Helper for our Service Learning Project Kids4Kids which just launched in our school wide assembly.

 

Your responsibilities will be coordinating with your classroom teacher and the Project Kids4Kids project lead to help with the collection of items and letters from our kids for the Family Connection kids.  More details and timelines will follow. 

 

About the projectProject Kids4Kids is focused on mental health and making a positive impact in our community. During this pandemic, rates of anxiety and depression have skyrocketed for both children and adults. We are all lucky enough to live in a community with resources to take care of not only our physical health, but our mental health during this unique time. But we have neighbors who don't have these resources and in addition, they have the additional stressors of food insecurity, job loss, challenges of distance learning while working, and much more. 

 

The goal for this project is to help our kids understand more about mental health, the importance of helping our fellow neighbors and understanding and learning how to communicate about the stress we all feel. Each classroom will be paired with 2 kids through the local non-profit Family Connections. Classrooms will learn about their new friends, brainstorm ideas on how to help them stay calm and happy in these unique times, and put together a personalized care package for each child to be delivered before the holidays.

 

Thank you!
