Operation Belle Glade



  Operation Belle Glade was a huge success! All the 4th and 5th graders took a charter bus to a school in Belle Glade where they unloaded a huge truck full of school supplies for the children who needed them. They all sorted the supplies, wrote notes for the kids, and stuffed the bags. After such a great day all the kids are locked in at the church for a whole night full of fun. Here are some pictures my 10 year old took.
