#Socktober 2015: Star Academy

It's that time of year again!















Last year, as part of the Kind Kids Club, we organized a small donation drive in 5th Grade, benefitting the Loaves and Fishes non-profit organization in Sacramento. This year, we'd like to expand it school-wide and invite everyone at Star Academy to participate!

How does my student/family participate in #Socktober?
It's easy! We are collecting new socks or essentials on the list below. You can bring any of these items to school during the month of October. You can also talk to you neighbors or local businesses and see if they'd like to donate as well! Donation bins are located in classrooms and at the front desk.

You can also share what you're doing for #Socktober on social media!

Last day of collection will be Friday, October 30th.
