  • Jack London Square Holiday Giving Program

    This holiday season we are teaming up with Jack London Square for their Always Together: Lights Up for the Holidays- 5 Days of Celebration!  We are asking students to submit videos of themselves answering the question “How are you giving this holiday?” in 1-5 sentences.

    Giving can be as simple as taking out the trash and not fighting with your siblings or by donating time at your local food bank or animal shelter. There’s no need to rehearse or script your answers! We’re looking for authentic answers from the kids. We encourage you to think up ways to help not only your family, fellow students, but also your community. A select amount of videos will be featured on Jack London Square’s online programming throughout the Days of Celebration -  Virtual Event Series that ends with Jack London Square showcasing the 2020 Tree Lighting online. This will all be available for all of us to watch from home on during the week of December 7 – December 11th.  Let’s spread the love and cheer this holiday season. Be Creative. Get Festive!

    Parents: Once you and your JM student are ready, please film them in the following way:

    1. Ask the question so we can hear you while YOU film your child. EXAMPLE: Samantha, “How are you giving this holiday?
    2. Students can then answer while being filmed “I am giving by ”…. They can say up to 5 sentences for their answer
    3. Be sure to name the file with the child’s first name and age (e.g. Samantha11). 
    4. Email the video to Mrs. Green at no later than 12:00 noon this coming Friday, November 20th.
