Moreland Hills rocks the walk

Moreland Hills Elementary School kicked off their “Rock the Walk” 2019 Walkathon at an afternoon all-school assembly on Oct. 14. The goal of the annual Orange Elementary and Middle Schools PTA fundraiser is to both raise money and to teach students ways to express themselves through kindness and what it means to “pay it forward.” Students will paint “kindness rocks,” look for ways to do random acts of kindness, participate in various motivational activities throughout the two-week event and ultimately walk around the school in the actual Walkathon on Oct. 24. The PTA uses the funds for projects that directly and positively impact the students and staff throughout the year. To donate, visit https://bit.ly/33nVFMe.

Mitten drive upcoming

The Orange Elementary and Middle Schools PTA is collecting winter clothing to help people in need during its mitten drive from Nov. 4-8. This opportunity is for all Moreland Hills Elementary School children and their families to support one another during the Thanksgiving season. The PTA encourages families to include the children in this project by letting them help clean out the closets or do the shopping.
