For the past several years, Central Elementary School has collaborated with the Local Chapter of Circle of Friends and the Arkansas Children’s Hospital through the Central Has Heart Campaign. This year, Central students brought travel size face wipes, mouthwash, deodorant, and toothbrush/toothpaste combo sets to school during the month of February.  Over 1,600 items were collected during the campaign. Mrs. Cassidy Smith’s Gifted and Talented (SAGE) students sorted and boxed all of the items to be sent to Arkansas Children’s Hospital to help assemble family bags.  These family bags are given to families who have children in the hospital.

Students from each grade whose homeroom collected the most items are pictured:  4th grade, Mrs. Bailey’s; 5th grade, Mrs. Watson’s; and 6th grade, Mrs. Atkinson’s. Thanks to all of you who helped make this campaign a success.
