It’s that time of year again! The children at Hopatcong Durban Avenue celebrated 100 days of learning on February 19th, their 100th Day of School!
First grade teacher, Doreen Sciabica and School Counselor, Lisa Schuffenhauer, again worked with Connect for Community to coordinate a donation of items needed by local food pantries.
Since February is also Dental Health Month, the preschoolers donated dental floss, the kindergarten children were encouraged to bring toothbrushes, and first grade students were responsible for toothpaste. During lunch and at the end of the day, the students helped Mrs. Sciabica count the donations using their skills in skip counting by ones, twos, and fives.
The results were, as always, wonderful!
Three hundred twenty six items were collected for those in need in Sussex County!
The other Hopatcong Schools also participated by collecting soap, hair care products, toilet paper, tissues, and other necessities with help from the school counselors. As with Durban Avenue’s recent Souper + Bowl, the children and parents of Hopatcong are exceedingly generous.
