OUR PRO-SOCIAL PROJECT
Each year the students and staff of Kennedy Elementary and the GNA Elementary Center sponsor a Pro-Social project for the school year. Our previous projects have included Bucks for Books (Mill Memorial Library), Pennies for Pines, Donations for Defibrillators, Rise up for Risers, Bucks for Books II, Greens for Guides, Bucks for Broadcasting, and Dollars Against Drugs.
2008-2009
CHANGE FOR CHILDREN
Our Pro-Social Project this year is Change for Children. The money will be donated to the Janet Weis Children's Hospital associated with Geisinger in Danville.
Change for Children was launched on Friday, November 7 and will continue every Friday through the end of April. We realize that the economy is hard on everyone. We ask students to bring in any spare change on Fridays to donate to this project. Each Friday during opening exercises, our Safety Patrol members will visit each room with their containers to collect the money. At the Halloween parade, Safety Patrol members also accepted donations from our parade spectators.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
2008 - LOCKS OF LOVE - 2009
Our pro-social project this year is twofold. Students and staff are invited to grow their hair to donate to Locks of Love. This organization accepts donated ponytails and makes them into hair pieces for financially disadvantaged children under 18 in the United States and Canada who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss for any diagnosis. The hair pieces help restore their self-esteem and confidence. At the end of the year, we shall have hair stylists who will donate their services to cut hair. A flyer with permission slip will be sent home later in the school year.
2007-2008

GREENS FOR GUIDES
Greens for Guides is a program at the GNA Elementary Center that collects money to offset some of the cost for training a dog for the Leader Dog program. Total cost to train a Leader Dog from a pup to an adult trained dog is approximately $35,000.00
The Leader Dog program is sponsored by the Lions Club. It is located in Rochester, Michigan. The service is provided, at no expense, to a visually challenged person or unsighted person. The dogs are picked for the Leader Dog Program as pups. The pups spend one year living with a family and then are introduced into the Leader Dog Program. If the dog qualifies for the program, they are matched with a client.
2004-2005
BUCKS FOR BOOKS
Bucks for Books is our Pro-Social Project this year. Every Friday, Safety Patrol students collected money brought in by the students and staff. We collected until May. The money was presented to the Mill Memorial Library in Nanticoke.

2003-2004

MONEY FOR MUSIC
Here we raised money to help the instrumental music program. Donations took two forms.
You were able to donate any unused, working instruments which were no longer being used. We had them cleaned. We accepted money to help refurbish donated instruments and to purchase new ones.
The new instruments belong to the school. We did not set a monetary goal for this project. The drive continued every Friday through May. We asked students to bring in any spare change on Fridays to donate to this project. Each Friday during opening exercises, our Safety Patrol members visited each room with their containers to collect the money.
Thank you for your musical support!
2001-2002
DONATIONS FOR DEFIBRILLATOR
In 2001-2002 our Pro-Social Project was Donations for Defibrillator. The defibrillator was received during the summer. The defibrillators were installed in each school.
In Kennedy, the defibrillator is located in the hallway (across from the office) on the right as you enter the school. In Lincoln, the defibrillator is located on the first floor outside the office on the wall near the girls' lavatory.
Thank you to everyone who donated
