    Every December, fifth grade students give back to the community through a project called Project Cuddle-Up. Students donate supplies to create tied fleece blankets to be donated to Paz de Cristo Community Center, an interfaith community outreach program. This years' 5th graders created 91 blankets that will be distributed by Paz de Cristo to individuals in need this winter season. This project means a lot to the students and their teachers because of the warmth that the blankets will provide and love that the blankets represent to those in need. Project Cuddle Up Photo Album
