Coins for Coats

Guest Blogger: Mrs. Lajaunie, Library Assistant

The sweet sound of coins dropping into milk jugs filled Forest North classrooms last month. Round Rock ISD kicked off the Coins for Coats donation drive on Oct. 12th. Mrs. Fournier, along with her team of caring 4th graders, led the campaign at Forest North. This year's drive was a HUGE success! All together our Eagles raised $452! This money goes directly to the The Round Rock Serving Center to provide coats this winter for students in need. Mrs. James' Kindergarten class won 30 minutes of special reading time in the library for raising the most money at Forest North. Flashlight Friday meant that while Mrs. James got 30 minutes of additional planning time, her students read in the library with the lights off with Mrs. Fournier. RRISD raised close to $12,000 this year which is about $3,000 more than the previous record! Thank you to all of our eager Eagles who are always ready and willing to help. About 1,200 RRISD students will be warmed this winter because of your generosity, and 352 of them will be all because of our generosity at Forest North.
