Kicks for Kids!

On the way to school on Tuesday, I was listening to Hot 103.1 and heard someone talking about the West Broadway Youth Outreach's program, Kicks for Kids. WBYO runs a variety of programs for kids in their neighbourhood. Right now they are training for the 5ish Fun Run on June 1. Some of the kids don't have proper running shoes so WBYO is asking for donations of new or gently used runners for kids and youth. I shared this information with the Kids of Room 9 and they thought it was a good idea to help! I am, as always, very proud of them. -Ms. Clarke

Yesterday the Kids of Room 9 picked a job for Kicks for Kids. The jobs were posters, letter, and announcements. The posters had pictures of shoes and a title on it. We're going to put them on the bulletin board and all around the school. -Anna

Today we made posters. Next week we are going to hang them up. -Claire

The announcements are going to go on Monday. We are going to start collecting shoes on Monday. Last night Ms. Clarke went and got 4 pairs of shoes to start us off. -Cali

Our goal is 50 pairs of runners. On the posters we had to have something about WBYO and about the dates and the sizes (we'll take any size). -Dylan W
