During the first two weeks of April, the Elementary Student Council hosted a book drive. The goal of our book drive was to collect 200 books to donate to the Orphan Grain Train. Over the course of the two weeks our elementary students were able to collect 509 books for donation!!! The Elementary Student Council members delivered and boxed up the books at the Orphan Grain Train in Norfolk Ne. After the five members had finished boxing, they talked with the director of the Orphan Grain Train. He let them know that their donation would be heading to New Guinea as they had been hit by fire damage and lost books and libraries. The members were very proud to deliver this large shipment on behalf of all the Winside Elementary Students, and we thank all who took part!
Kindergarten Celebrates Arbor Day at NECC
Our kindergartners enjoyed the day while they learned about the benefits trees provide to our world.
The event also provided a tremendous learning experience for NECC students as they led activities for the children. Also involved were Steve Rasmussen from the Wayne County Extension Office and Jamie Bachman from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, as well as people from the grounds maintenance crew at Northeast Community College.
