We celebrated at Lincoln School with the class who collected the most amounts of coats. The pizza party with Mrs. Bowser’s 5th grade class gave us the opportunity to thank for the kids for their part in bringing in a total of 315 coats.  We appreciate the hard work of the students! We visited with the class about the importance of helping others in our community and how we can all make a difference!
