Blankets for babies

Fourth-graders in teacher Denise Nolan's class at Palmer Elementary School display the quilts they made to donate to University Hospital's pediatric ward. Every year Nolan challenges her students to read a minimum of 12 books to earn enough squares to make an infant-sized quilt so they can participate in the "Blankets for Babies" activity. The project motivates students to read and expand their literacy skills. They also learn the value of good deeds. The students visited University Hospital on June 10 to deliver the 25 quilts they had made. Students are (fourth row, from left) Brett Van Patten, Frank Mayosky, Mckenna Rose, Billy Tedesco, Ben Poon, Meghan Cleeton, Selina Medina, Ashlea Maxwell, Mike George, (third row, from left) Cody Palmer, Jessica Hardter, Kaylee Damm, Keyoi'ra Gibson, Maddie Henson, Nicole Harry, Abby Mott, (second row, from left) Olivia Calabrese, Vanessa Woodruff, Justin Goodridge, Spencer Bruce, Robby Bryant, Jeremy Carballido, (first row, from left) Virginia Forester, Kelsey Lastowicka and Kyle Chamberlain.
