MCGRAW STUDENTS SEND MESSAGES OF CHEER

The Student Council at McGraw Elementary School launched its first ever “Bring Cheer Campaign” to provide holiday cards and cheerful messages to Yuma community members isolated due to COVID-19. Their goal was to gather 2,000 holiday cards and deliver
them to assisted living homes and shelters during the holiday season.

 

The Bring Cheer Campaign launched in November across all District One Schools. Students in Kindergarten - 8th grades collaborated to create holiday cards, and submitted their creation to McGraw Student Council leader Mark De Young. With a deadline of December 11th,
student council members were thrilled to receive 1,921 cards from fellow District One students. 

 

“We truly came together as ONE district this holiday season and made a lasting impact on our community and with our students. We are the example to our students that every simple action can culminate in creating a greater movement, and I am proud to be part of this great
family of educators,” stated Mark De Young.
