        Santa had an amazing helper this year named Danielle who is a fifth grader at Steele School. She is responsible for organizing and collecting both food and small presents for our needy families in our community. Her dedication and devotion to this school project made the holidays even more special for her family and friends. If for some reason Santa can't make it next year, just call Danielle!

Teacher - computer lab

         I would like to honor all my students for creating original postcards for the soldiers in Iraq. It was very heartening to read their messages to the soldiers. I'm sure whoever received the cards will have a little piece of home to tide them over until they are back in the U.S.A. I'm proud to say we sent close to 300 cards in time for the holidays. Way to go P.S. 279!


Claxton Elementary School

Eagle's Aerie School
Mike Hart
Teacher - Grade 6

        Our School wanted to recognize Bryce S. a 6th grader at Eagle's Aerie School in Gilbert. Bryce decided after the Thanksgiving holiday that she wanted to help the homeless. She was not asked or required in any way to do this, but she organized a spare change drive to be given to the poor or needy during Christmas time. Our class (& School) regularly discusses ways for us to become better citizens, but Bryce applied the discussions into a very good cause. Thank you Bryce for being a good citizen and having a kind heart.
