Lincoln-Erdman Students Donate Blankets to Hospitals
For the past two months, Lincoln-Erdman Elementary School students have been studying compassion. Studying and displaying different character traits is a cornerstone of the school's character education program. Panther Pals is the name of Lincoln-Erdman's character education groups. Panther Pals meets twice every month to help students learn and practice positive character traits.
As an extension of the lessons on compassion, the students tied 40 fleece blankets, which will be donated to local hospitals for children and babies who have to spend time in the hospital. The donation is made through Eliza's Closet, which is a local organization that supplies the local hospitals with toys and blankets for all children to help make their hospital stay a little easier to deal with and not so frightening. Several volunteers from Lincoln-Erdman met with volunteers from Christ The Rock Church to cut the fleece to size and to cut the fringe for students to tie.
Lincoln-Erdman teachers in charge of this project were Sue Mrdjenovich, Brenda Stange and Karen Zipperer. Donations of new toys or blankets can be made to Eliza's Closet by contacting Kris Pease at 920-419-2050.
