Highland Park 4th Graders Make Blankets for Young Patients at Hospital

Posted in

Highland Park Elementary 4th Graders in Michaela Escoto’s class enjoy doing community service projects. The class recently made colorful fleece blankets and members of the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Women’s Health Department visited the school and accepted the blankets which will be given to babies and young patients at the hospital.

The students said they had done projects for the elderly before and now want to do something for children. Mrs. Escoto tries to encourage her students to serve others in our community whenever possible. The 4th Graders tagged themselves as “super generous.”
