One School, One Book, One Great Community Service Project

Paxtang Elementary School participated in an all school book club called One School, One Book. All Paxtang Elementary families received a copy of the same book – The Chocolate Touch – and were asked to read it at home during the month of February. 

In an effort to compliment the theme of the book,  Paxtang Elementary School participated in a community service project to collect money for Caitlin’s Smiles.  Students were asked to bring in loose change and/or small bills to help support the cause.  Students used their change to vote for their favorite classroom invented candy bar creation.  These classroom-created boards were on display during lunch hours so that students could vote for their favorite board.  Paxtang staff, students and families were able to raise $794.00 for this worthy cause!  Additionally, students have also donated numerous containers of Play Doh to give to Caitlin’s Smiles.

Paxtang would like to recognize the following community partners for donating to our event:   Walmart, Giant, Costco, Weis and Sharp Shopper.
