  • Read a Book-Feed the World, School-Wide Service Project Supporting Heifer Int'l

    Thank you to all our generous JGES families for your donations to Heifer International.  We were able to collect over $500 and we so appreciate all of your support.  We would also like to thank all the students who submitted their wonderful and creative ideas on how the collected funds should be spent.  Congratulations to Ms. Shaw's class for their joint submission which was the selected winner!  With the funds, it has been decided to purchase three sheep, three flocks of chicks, two hives of honeybees and a flock of ducks and geese.  Way to go Jeffreys Grove!  You have all contributed to making a big difference in the lives of those in need.

    "Dear JG Staff, Mrs. Shaws class wants to buy with the Heifer money three sheep and three flocks of chickens.  First, sheep give wool to make clothes.  
    And have babies to pass on.  Second, chickens lay 200 eggs a year.  Third, chickens don't take up a lot of space and sheep can eat grass and feed themselves.  
    Don't you think it is a good idea to buy three sheep and three flocks of chicks?  Thank you for considering our ideas.
    Love, Ms Shaw's Koalas"
