February is all about CARING FOR OTHERS!

This month is all about…Caring for others. Caring for others means showing concern for others or showing kindness. How can you show someone you care?

Change Matters!

The week of Tuesday Feb 19th through Tuesday February 26th, our school is proudly participating in a student philanthropy fundraising campaign called – Change Matters – to benefit Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center – Howard County’s only 24-hour homeless shelter and crisis center.

Did you know that Howard County is one of the richest counties in the United States? BUT, even in Howard County, many adults and children are homeless.

How do some people become homeless?

  • People may lose their job.
  • Some get sick and can’t work.
  • People have problems and need help to get better.
  • They can’t pay their bills and end up without a place to live.

You can help the homeless by contributing your small change to Change Matters. Your change will be used to improve the lives of homeless children and families at Grassroots. If you can donate, please bring in your change the last week of February and become a Change Matters Superhero! Remember that you are never too young to show kindness and make a difference in the lives of people who need help in our community!
