‘You’ve Been Jingled!’
AVON- With notes, cards and singing 4th grades students in Avon are jingling around the community to help spread holiday cheer. The program is called, “You’ve been Jingled” and with a little bit of holiday joy and community spirit students from the St Agnes School picked business that they wanted to send a thoughtful message to.
Each child picked a business that interested them or that they had a personal connection to for example one student chose the barber since he had been getting haircuts there since he was 2, one chose the police station since his father is a State Trooper, and one picked the Village Restaurant because he goes there with his family. They created thoughtful and detailed messages in their cards. On Tuesday December 22nd, they strolled around town caroling and laughing while running to each door knob, taping jingle bells and the card out front, and knocking and waving as they kept going. “The whole process was something I know that they will never forget” stated their teacher, Mrs. Elizabeth Dowd.
Also during December, the 3rd grade class created holiday cards to send to home bound and elderly members of our community. Students in all grades donated hats and gloves to be given to Livingston County Catholic Charities to support their Winter Gear Drive as well as toys that were donated to the House of Mercy in Rochester.
Agnes students place a “You’ve been Jingled” note at the Village Restaurant in Avon.
