Plymouth School District schools, staff, students, and families have taken time this holiday season to help others. Here are some examples of their generosity!
- Fairview partners with Salem UCC to provide toys and food for families.
- Parkview created a mini “Festival of Trees” with help from students, staff, parents and community members. Classroom trees are themed to something the students are learning about in the classroom, and other trees reflect the special interests of student groups and staff. The school is collecting donations for the Plymouth Food Pantry under the trees.
Riverview Middle School
- Riverview collected items for the Plymouth Food Pantry.
- Riverview collected books for the "Feeding Literacy" program to provide free books to food pantry recipients.
- Sixth-graders surprised Project Angel Hugs with the results of a toy drive.
- Riverview students read to their Head Start Pals during a special program at which each child received a handmade tie-blanket.
- Riverview Choirs sang and rang the Salvation Army bell.
- The Riverview 7th-grade basketball team played in a Toys for Tots Tournament and donated toys to Sheboygan County children in need.
Plymouth High School
- National Honor Society conducted its annual Food Drive from Dec. 10 to 18, raising $2,000 and collecting 1,700 food items for the Food Pantry, plus $500 for Safe Harbor. NHS thanks everyone who donated to make this year's food drive a success again!
- Youth Service students volunteered at the Plymouth Food pantry and at Project Angel Hugs.
- At the most recent PHS Blood Drive, 79 people donated 62 units of blood, potentially helping to extend or save the lives of up to 186 patients in hospitals.
- Peers for Peers sold singing candy canes where students will sing to recipients Dec. 19; money raised goes to the student help fund. The club also is helping the Toys for Tots program and St. Vincent de Paul by assisting with set up, helping families select Christmas gifts for their children, assisting families with getting gifts to their cars, and restocking tables with toys.
- WE ACT sold jewelry, bags, key chains, scarves, and other gifts from around the world to benefit the club’s local and global charity projects, which include providing nine Plymouth families with meals and gift cards.
