Elementary Student Guides Head Up Care Kit Project

Elementary Student Guides

The elementary Student Guides program offers students an opportunity to follow Christ in servant leadership roles and to gain decision-making skills. Representatives from each grade level are elected by their classmates and meet regularly to choose and coordinate service projects for the elementary school, and to discuss and recommend solutions for issues that may arise (such as playground clean-up).

Servant-Leadership in Action

The Student Guides are in the process of coordinating their spring service project: Care Kits for Seattle's homeless people. Over the next two weeks the elementary students will be collecting items in our classrooms for these Care Kits. Each elementary student is to bring one toothbrush, and each class is designated to bring 100 of a particular item. Each class that reaches their goal of 100 + one toothbrush per student will receive a special reward. After Spring Break, the Student Guides will assemble the Care Kits and redistribute them to each student and teacher in the elementary to share with someone.

Each class is designated the following items:
Kindergarten - 100 gallon-sized zipper lock plastic bags
1st Grade - 100 granola bars
2nd Grade - 100 16 oz water bottles
3rd Grade - 100 individually wrapped cracker packets
4th Grade - 100 combs 
5th Grade - 100 applesauce cups or fruit cups
6th Grade - 6 boxes of 100 bandaids
