To celebrate the Christmas season, Macon East lower school classes have participated in various charitable service projects as well as random acts of kindness around school campus. The entire lower school participated in the food drive, while the 1st graders collected much needed items for the Montgomery Humane Shelter. The 2nd and 4th grades donated pajamas and books for children through the Family Sunshine Center. Sixth grade and first grade worked together to collect pre-loved coats and gloves for those in need. Shoeboxes for Samaritan’s Purse were filled by K3 and K4 students. Toys were donated to the Montgomery Baptist Association Toy Drive by the 3rd and 5th graders. It is so exciting to see the students at Macon East learn that the real joy of Christmas comes from giving to others.
Spreading cheer around campus Mrs. Mills’ Pre-K students decorated the school office for the holidays, and the Kindergarten class sang carols and colored pictures for a special school helper. Our school janitors received thank you notes from the 1st grade, and the 2nd grade went caroling to the other classrooms. Third grade created a Christmas banner to hang in the multi-purpose room with our 10 foot live Christmas tree. All the classes received candy cane gifts from the 4th grade, and the 5th grade decorated cookies for the school staff. Mrs. Walters’ 6th grade class wrote letters to soldiers who won’t be with their families for Christmas thanking them for their service to our country. Macon East lower school teachers and students enjoyed sharing the true spirit of Christmas throughout the month of December.
