Project Linus

The wonderful women of Project Linus from Harrison Freewill Baptist Church in Minford have already made and donated several regular blankets and a weighted lap blanket to our MD unit here at Northwest Elementary. Ann and Darrell Cable delivered the blankets on May 12th, and while they were here, took an order for more! This summer, the ladies will be working on 20 more weighted lap blankets and 24 regular blankets for our Northwest kiddos! They charge absolutely nothing for the blankets, but do accept donations of fabric (cotton, flannel, and fleece), batting, and thread. Ann said that they will also make a "touchy, feely blanket" for our sensory room and are going to look into making weighted neck "snakes" and other weighted sensory items. These blankets can cost over $100 a piece if purchased from specialty catalogs, so we are VERY LUCKY they want share their gifts with Northwest!
The mission of Project Linus is to "Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly creadted by volunteer blanketeers." If you would like to learn more about Project Linus, go to http://www.projectlinus.orghttp://www.projectlinus.org
If you would like to make a donation of material, thread, or batting, you may contact Ann Cable directly at 740-259-3372.

INFOhio Beach Bags

Combat the Summer Slide with Beach Bags and Virtual Camp INFOhio
You have a fun way to keep your child’s reading skills sharp this summer with downloadable "Beach Bags" for K-3 and the virtual Camp INFOhio for grades 4-6. Beach Bags feature stories and activities that let children practice reading skills while learning about careers and their environment. Camp INFOhio contains five days of reading, activities, and experiments centered on STEAM topics. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math. Kids can try their hand at code breaking, conduct science experiments with items they find in the kitchen, learn about roller coasters before designing their own, and create their own musical instruments. The Beach Bags and Camp INFOhio are offered free to all Ohio families and schools by INFOhio and the Ohio Department of Education. Find them all by going to www.infohio.org and clicking Stop the Summer Slide! in the What’s New box.
