Our Lower School students gathered to wrap gifts donated by the community to benefit foster children through the One Simple Wish Foundation (onesimplewish.org) in the annual Princeton Day School Wrap-In event. Director of Service Learning and 3rd grade teacher Margie Gibson, who helped organize the event, asked students and families to consider purchasing small gifts, such as: activity kits, art supplies, dolls for little ones, action figures, race cars, coloring books, sticker books, play dough, and crayons/markers.
A group of 10th grade students helped to organize all the donations for wrapping. And in support of our school's mission, the gifts were wrapped by students in sustainable ways, making use of recycled and repurposed materials collected by the School.
This morning, there was a steady stream of students joining in on the gift-wrapping, as well as special help by Head of Lower School Alesia Klein and Head of School Paul Stellato. Many boxes filled with gifts were collected for One Simple Wish, just in time for the holidays. Here are some photos.
