Carlton Palmore Elementary Students are Spreading Joy

One Teddy Bear at a Time!

February 26, 2016 The Lighthouse Council, the student council of Carlton Palmore Elementary School, implemented their first community service project with great success! The Teddy Bear Round-Up was created to show love to kids and adults in the community who need special encouragement on Valentine’s Day. The council asked the school community to bring one new teddy bear to donate. Thanks to support from parents and students, the response was overwhelming. In the end, Carlton Palmore Elementary donated over 300 bears to students and elderly in the community, and helped to spread joy one teddy bear at a time. The mission of the Lighthouse Council is to build responsible leaders within the Carlton Palmore community and promote values that represent good character in all students.
