Teacher’s Holiday Food Drive Enters 24th Year

SEBRING, OH - Leann Laure, a third-grade teacher at B.L. Miller Elementary School in Sebring, is once again doing her part to help out her community during the holiday season.

Mrs. Laure and her third-grade class’ Christmas Canned Food Drive began Monday, December 3, 2018, and continues until Wednesday, December 19, 2018. The items collected will be sorted into holiday baskets, which will be picked up or deliver to participating families Friday, December 21, 2018.

This is the 24th year Mrs. Laure has managed a school-wide food drive. She was inspired to start a food drive after a discussion with her father.

“We discussed how we were so blessed to have the things that we do in our lives,” said Laure. “But we knew that many others in our school community were struggling to get by.”

All contributions made will be distributed to local families in need this holiday season. When Laure started the drive, they were able to provide holiday baskets to eight families. The drive has grown to provide for over 40 families. Some baskets contain clothing and toys, too

“I can not do this Christmas Drive alone,” said Laure.  “I used to, but it has become so huge, I have to rely on the help of others to make it all run smoothly.”

A contest is held between the classes to see who can donate the most items. Extra points are rewarded for particular items that are brought in on certain days. The class with the most points on December 19th wins a pizza party. One winner will be chosen from classes kindergarten through third-grade and fourth-grade through sixth-grade.

Sebring McKinley High School starts the School Year building pride

 

Sebring, OH- Sebring McKinley Junior and Senior High School welcomed students home for the first day of school today.

Instead of spending the entire day in the classroom, students and staff spent the day building school pride. Students watched The Wizard of Oz to learn there is no place like home. Students and staff also worked in small groups completing projects, which reflected similar themes throughout The Wizard of Oz. Just like characters from the movie, students searched for their heart, courage, and brains. Those three themes will be used in the classroom throughout the school year.

“Our school improvement committee feels that heart, courage, and brains are three things that are vital to the success of each student,” said Nicole Mathias, McKinley High School Teacher.

Some Sebring alumni also returned “home,” and told students why they are proud to be a Sebring graduate. The alumni are members of the Sebring Class of 2007. The Trojan alumni were invited back to the school district as part of the All-Star Alumni Series.

"I am very thankful to be here for this All-Star Alumni Series that Sebring is hosting,” said Briana Jones, a 2007 graduate. “I went away for seven years, but came back because there is no place like home.”

Every McKinley student also received a binder, which came with a school planner. Students were also given a bottle of water, granola bars, and other items. Everything was donated by staff members, alumni, community members, and local businesses.
