Season for giving
In this season of giving, students at Guilford and Jeffers Hill Elementary schools wanted to offer a helping hand to Hondurans who were victims of Hurricane Mitch.
The school has pitched in with a "Pennies Can Help" collection, coordinated by art teacher Mark Luce.
The total collected, $535, was presented to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
Third-graders at Guilford Elementary School wanted to help the Honduran relief effort, too. Instructional assistant Candy Beck reports that the children have collected $43.31.
Jeffers Hill Elementary's winter concert is at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Families and friends are sure to be thrilled when they hear the students' vocal and instrumental performances.
The fifth-grade chorus is directed by Elizabeth Becker.
Second-year band is led by Wayne Binder, and first-, second- and third-year string instrument students are directed by Margo Guillory.
