School Community Service Project
The Clearwater Middle School and Intermediate center character education trait for the month of December is CARING. The two buildings took on the "Household Helpers" project to emphasize the important of caring for others and what good a simple project can do for a community We got in touch with the Clearwater Ministerial Alliance which runs the community food bank and asked what we could do to help out. We came up with collecting household cleaning and personal items. The students in grades 4-8 donated supplies that filled 116 buckets-a total of over 1700 items. The items in the buckets are toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, hand soap, bandaids, dish rags, dish towels, scrubbies, dishwashing soap, all purpose cleaner, paper towels, toilet paper, and trash bags. The food bank will distribute the items during the month of December and January.
