Student Council

As a Student Council School Spirit project, the students of Shoreham Elementary School, their families, and friends donated items to send to a Vermont troop in Iraq. This past week was also “I Love to Read and Write Week?. Among other things, students used their writing time this week to write letters and make Valentines for our chosen troop. We collected about 200 lbs of donations and on February 14th we mailed the donations and the letters to Company C 3/126 Air Ambulance. This troop is made up of soldiers from Vermont and Massachusetts.

Each month the current Student Council group brainstorms ideas for a School Spirit project or day. Sending a care package to a troop in Iraq was an idea that came from a previous student council group. February’s group liked the idea and in keeping with Valentine’s Day chose to use it to show love and support to our troops fighting in Iraq. We are all proud of the mature process and behavior of each of the Student Council groups.


Fall Update: This past fall one of the Student Council’s ideas was to collect coins for the Hurricane Katrina victims. We collected $389.43. This was added to a $500.00 donation made by the Kathleen Wolf Memorial Fund. The $889.43 was sent to the American Red Cross.
