Caring for Kids

On Tuesday, August 29, 2017, Pawnee Elementary and Valley View United Methodist Church were recognized as one of two outstanding Caring for Kids partnerships in the Kansas City area!  There are 7 school districts and 106 schools included in the Caring for Kids network.  It is exciting to be recognized for our efforts.

There are ongoing opportunities to serve.  We need financial support to provide weekend food for students and to provide treats for teachers on in-service days.  We need volunteers to help students work on various in-school projects, read with students, be a lunch buddy, or other assistance in the classroom.  The school also needs used yoga mats, children’s book donations, children’s clothing and shoes, and outdoor games (Jenga, bean bag toss, and ladder toss).  If you can assist, please contact Megan Williams at 681-1502 or megansurteesw@hotmail.com.
