Shaw Avenue Elementary School students made their mark this holiday season by participating in the annual Scholastic Book Clubs Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive benefiting the Pajama Program, a national nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and storybooks to at-risk children.

Facilitated by third-grade teacher Darlene Sinclair, the students brought in new pajamas from newborn to adult, for the cause. Through the program, Scholastic provides each child with a free book for each pair of pajamas that are donated to a child in need.

Sinclair’s students created signs around the school and focused on feelings of empathy and compassion throughout the drive.  

“I am very lucky to work for such a great district that supports me in these fundraising events and in caring for those in need,” she said.
