Valley View marks culmination of service project


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Students, teachers and staff at Valley View Elementary School watch and cheer Friday morning as cereal boxes fall like dominoes through the school hallway toward the gymnasium. For two weeks, students brought boxes of cereal to school with the goal of collecting 1,000 to donate to the Assurance Home and Roswell Community Disaster Relief Services. Students and their families surpassed that goal with 2,117 boxes, Principal Travis Ackerman said. Before donating them, however, the students and staff set up the boxes in the hallways, starting at the kindergarten classrooms at the north end of the school, around the corner near the main entrance and to the gym, where fifth-graders set up boxes in a spiral. The line then doubled back to its starting point. The project was the idea of kindergarten teacher Brooke Beaty, who said she saw a similar project online. Ackerman said the project helped teach the students about charity and working together as a team. (Juno Ogle Photo)
