This month our activity will be crafting cookies . We hope our project spreads happiness and cheer just in time for the holidays. We want to make the kids feel special about decorating their own cookies as well as teaching them how to bake and decorate.

We hope that the backpacks that we send to Kenya will touch the hearts of the kids who receive them. We will have two drives for people to donate backpacks. The drives will be at Trinity Christian School in Fairfax and McLean Presbyterian Church in McLean at the summer camp our church runs called Vacation Bible School. We will then fill the backpacks with school supplies and send them to Kenya.

We will write a creative story using BYTES Power Smarts characters to illustrate how multiple intelligences (Power Smarts) can be used to solve a wildlife problem and make this story available for free on the bytespowersmarts.com website, for free in the Teachers Pay Teachers open marketplace for educators, and for free to the Roots & Shoots member community.

Prior to our winter break, we asked school families to bring back any toiletries from hotels that they were traveling to, and to purchase underwear for children and women. We collected them between January, when our school started back, and mid-February. We delivered them to the cafe that the safe houses run.

We will start by advertising for this food drive in our school newsletter, posters, and by visiting each classroom. Then, we will have children bring non-perishable foods to their classes. We are aware that not many people are motivated to donate food, so we will host a pizza party for the class that has the most weight of food per student. At the end of the month, we will collect and weigh the food to determine the winner and deliver the food to the local orphanages.

In order to collect blankets I will ask people I know to donate yarn, full blankets or crochet/knit 8 inch squares. I will use the yarn and squares to put together blankets while making my own.

Make my friends and family aware of the project and that I would like to collect food instead of gifts to give to it to the local nonprofit organization. Have my birthday/party and collect the food.

This project is meant to kick off a service learning/ social justice initiative. This funding will allow us to hold a community meeting of interested parties to engage in a conversation about how to best engage students in understanding the community where they go to school, it's significant history and there role as citizens of that community. This meeting will help to build community awareness and buy-in for the project as well as be a means to gather individuals who already are willing to contribute time and talent to the project.

Students will create videos, brochures, pamphlets, 3-d models or flyers to reduce the amount of water being used at the residential and school level.

We will create a school flower and vegetable garden and harvest and share the produce. We will ask for donations from local stores to help with the costs. Students and staff at the school will maintain the garden.
