Instead of a party, Foundation Academy’s 4th grade Christmas tradition is to do a service project together. Mrs. Helton, one of our 4th grade teachers, had this to day: “It is our prayer that the students will understand that we are following the example of Christ as we serve others and love those that He loves. And in doing so, we are participating in a true act of worship for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
For this year’s project, the classes packed 10 food baskets with all that is needed for Christmas dinner. Students also wrote cards to the families letting them know that they are praying for each family and wishing them a Merry Christmas. The classes chose to have the baskets delivered to Tildenville Elementary, a community school that Foundation Academy partners with. From there, the baskets will be distributed to 10 elementary families in need. We love this 4th grade Christmas tradition! Check out the gallery below of this year’s project.
