Make A Difference - Mrs. Jones’ 3rd Grade Program Challenge Class at Flat Shoals Elementary


Project Goal: $600


About the project:  Mrs. Jones’ third grade students are getting involved and learning to make a difference in their local community.  Their project is to research the impact of $100 on a local non-profit organization and to compete to see which of the six groups can purchase the most goods to then donate to a local organization.  Guest speakers from Rockdale Emergency Relief Fund, Phoenix Pass, and Walking Home Together Animal Shelter will help them learn about each program and the impact of their donation.  The students are also researching the needs of these organizations and brainstorming ideas and ways to help.  Students will research and compare prices and use coupons to make the most of their money.  Guest speakers will also introduce them to the basics of grant writing.    The students are very excited about this class project and being able to help others!


Why donate?  Your donation will not only help these students learn about the importance of community service, but it will ultimately help a local non-profit organization as well!
