Marcy Elementary School families collected nearly 150 pairs of socks for Sussex Outreach Services (SOS) as part of the third grade service project. Bridget Matthiesen’s third grade class decided to host a sock drive because they are among the least donated clothing items at SOS.
Marcy students participate each year in a community service project designed to teach students about being respectful, helpful and kind to others. Volunteering at an early age creates positive life behaviors and helps them understand what it means to be a good citizen.
Matthiesen’s students earned a “crazy socks” day for their participation.
Marcy Elementary School is located at W180 N4851 Marcy Road, Menomonee Falls.
