Cold Hands Warm Hearts

Sarah, the main character in the book “The Mitten Tree” knits a pair of mittens, which she hangs on the tree at the bus stop for a little boy who has none. And so begins the fun of this wonderful book with a warm message.

The generosity of the Countrywood school community is greatly appreciated as students fill the collection basket with warm mittens and hats.

Anonymous… it’s a big word for primary school students to understand, but through the good deeds in the book ‘The Mitten Tree’ they understand the importance of giving.

Thank you to Mrs. Davis, Countrywood’s art teacher, for creating the beautiful mitten tree.

The Countrywood Mitten Drive has wrapped up, and we are happy to hear it was a big success!   Teacher Sue Lamorte will be delivering the gloves, mittens and hats to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission and the Family Service League within the next few days.  Inspired by the children’s story The Mitten Tree, by Candace Christiansen, students at Countrywood helped families in their community through their generous giving. A school-wide Mitten Drive has been underway with new mittens, gloves and hats being collected and donated to families in need.  Thank you to Mrs. Davis, Countrywood’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!
