Many students at Poquessing Middle School were involved with various community service projects during the week of January 9-13 to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as his birthday holiday approached.
On Monday the Student Council and the Friends of Rachel Club visited the Attleboro Comnunity in Langhorne to play board games and bingo with the some of the residents there. One resident was a retired third-grade teacher from Tawanka Elementary School, Marilyn Deibler. The Interact Club started creating hand-made joke books that will be donated to children at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). On Wednesday the Wrestling Team made cards and breakfast bags for Aid for Friends, with help from members of the Debate Club. On Thursday Tri-M (Honors Music) worked on creating 'no-sew' fleece blankets for CHOP. Today the Environmental Club visited Ferderbar Elementary School to spend time with kindergarten and first grade students reading books to them. On Tuesday January 17 the Poquessing Cheerleaders will be making home-made chocolate-covered pretzels, which will be donated to a homeless shelter.
Thanks to all the students that made Neshaminy proud with their participation!
