Third Grade Cub Club Partners with the Laytonsville Community to Serve Others- "With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility!"
Our 2017-2018 Third Grade Cub Club members partnered with the
Laytonsville Lions and the Laytonsville Volunteer Fire department to
host a Blood Drive on October 3rd. Students made posters to communicate
the event and volunteered their time to serve snacks to community
members who donated blood. The drive was most successful as 59 generous
people donated a total of 59 units. Prior the drive, the students read
about the importance of donating blood and why becoming involved in
this event provided a much needed community service. They also learned
about blood types and how often they occur in the world's population.
During the event, students also collected money for hurricane relief.
By the end of the evening, $227.00 was collected !!!
We are proud of our students' efforts and their respectful behavior
during the event. A special thank-you is extended to our third grade
teachers, Ms. Bensley, Ms. Hudson, and Mrs. O'Brien, and the
Laytonsville Lions for embracing the vision that elementary school
students can use their gifts and talents to serve others. We'd also
like to thank them for providing authentic opportunities for our
students to apply the skills they learn at home and school! So, what's
the next community project for our Cub Club? Our students will soon
once again partner with the Laytonsville Lions to clean and sort
