SOCKtober Sock Drive at PBES
Pine Bush third-graders were busy this past October. They participated in a social awareness-to-action project with the goal of making the lives of some local families a bit warmer this season. Inspired by the video "A Pep Talk from Kid President with Grover," the PBES third grade class held a sock drive to collect new socks to donate to the local organization "Things of My Very Own."  The students made posters, wrote letters to their families and teachers, as well as produced videos to invite the Guilderland community to support their cause. In total, the students collected 818 pairs of socks.
