The Countrywood Mitten Drive was inspired by the children’s book, The Mitten Tree, by Candace Christiansen.  The idea came to Ms. Lamorte as she read this wonderful, heartwarming story to her kindergarteners.  Countrywood students are helping families in their community by bringing in new mittens and gloves.  They will be donated to families in need through the Helping Hands Rescue Mission and the Family Service League.  Thank you to Ms. Davis, CW’s art teacher, for creating the beautiful mitten tree and to the many “helping hands” here at Countrywood who are reaching out to help others!
