The K-Kids of West Street Elementary School culminated 2018 with the giving spirit. The K-Kids got the entire West Street student body involved by collecting food for Thanksgiving dinners for the area families in need.
Later, in December, they provided and served coffee for the school’s staff, showing the students’ appreciation toward their teachers, office staff and all those who made West Street an awesome place to learn and enjoy.
Before the Christmas break, a giving tree was assembled in the foyer. A Christmas trivia contest, Twelve Days of Christmas, was held each morning. The first two kids who answered correctly were able to choose a gift from under the giving tree.
The giving continues in 2019. The K-Kids will visit Brookside Retirement Home to visit the residents and share smiles and conversation. They will direct a drive to collect craft items for delivery to Kamp Kiwanis, in conjunction with their sponsoring Kiwanis club. The next project will be collecting pop cans or other beverage cans opening tabs to give to the Ronald McDonald House fund drive.
The West Street K-Kids is advised by Lenore Palmeri. The K-Kids is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Niagara-Wheatfield. Danny Maerten is the club’s adviser/liaison to the school.
Contact Maerten to donate craft items lying around to Kamp Kiwanis, or for information on the Kiwanis Club of Niagara-Wheatfield call 731-3696 or email [email protected] The club meets at 6:30 PM every Thursday at the Orange Tree Inn.
