Students Find Joy in Helping Others

TKMS students take over the Classmates Care program to provide warm winter clothing for TK families.

Mitchell Corner helped Wyatt Miller search through racks of winter clothes, bins with hats and mittens, and storage tubs filled with children’s boots to find just the right winter gear for a student in need at McFall Elementary. Lillian Lienesch’s middle school service learning class has taken over operations of the Classmates Care program. With the help of middle school “Links” students like Corner, Lienesch’s special needs students sort and organize the clothing donations, take orders as they come in from different schools, and fill and deliver the orders to students in the district.

Students Collect Stuffed Animals to Bring Comfort to Children

Big bears, little dogs, rainbow rabbits, and pink lions - all collected by Thornapple Kellogg Middle School students to bring smiles to faces of children. The Teen Leadership classes at the middle school take on different community service projects throughout the year. This quarter, students decided to give to a local charity started by another young person.
