The month of December is a month of giving. At Hawk Place we have at least one random act of kindness day a month to instill kindness year around. The students enjoyed surprising their fellow elementary students putting small "gifts" in all the elementary lockers for the children to find. There was quite the excitement the next morning. Older students made fruit baskets to thank our Spice Girls Chefs and other community partners .Thank you to everyone that contributed to our can drive for the food pantry. We took a van load of boxes of canned items and experienced the process of weighing and sorting.

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day! As we remember one of the 20th century’s great Americans, let’s consider the ways in which Dr. King led by example and inspired multiple generations to work for change. While some aspects of his dream have been realized, we still have much work to do. How can you make a difference today?
