Heart to Heart Project
Each year, the 2nd grade students at Rogers Elementary brainstorm needs in the community that they have heard about and which they feel compel them to action. They discuss these and decide as a group on one that they will learn more about and contribute to monetarily. The students then sell Heart Grams (Fruit Roll-Ups or fruit snacks with a kind message attached) for students to send to other students during the week of Valentine's Day. They then organize, assemble, and deliver the grams and the money raised is then given to their chosen cause.
