Kindergarten Students Learn Snow Safety

McFall kindergarten students got a safety lesson from the Barry County Road Commission.

Just because there’s no snow yet, doesn’t mean it’s not coming eventually to West Michigan. A member of the Barry County Road Commission spoke recently to McFall kindergarten students about staying safe while playing outside the snow or waiting for the bus near the road.

TKMS Students Donate to Help Veterans

Eighth-graders make donations to help veterans.

Thornapple Kellogg Middle School students donated funds they raised for Veterans Day to the Middleville Veterans Memorial project and the Barry County United Way for veterans assistance programs.

Students Find Joy in Helping Others

TKMS students take over Classmates Care to provide winter clothing items to TK families in need.

Mitchell Corner helped Wyatt Miller search through racks of winter clothes, bins with hats and mittens, and storage tubs filled with children’s boots to find just the right winter gear for a student in need at McFall Elementary. Lillian Lienesch’s middle school service learning class has taken over operations of the Classmates Care program. With the help of middle school “Links” students like Corner, Lienesch’s special needs students sort and organize the clothing donations, take orders as they come in from different schools, and fill and deliver the orders to students in the district.
