Social Project

John F. Kennedy Elementary had their third annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Campaign.  Our students donated shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts for either a boy or girl.  These shoe boxes are collected for needy children around the world and the Navajo reservations in the United States.  This year John F. Kennedy students collected a total of 210 shoeboxes.  The Rio Grande Valley Operation Christmas Child campaign collected 5,453 boxes this year, we are so proud to say that 210 of them came for J.F. K. in the small town of Elsa, Tx.  We want to thank our parents for supporting this social cause and for helping us instill in our students the spirit of giving.
