  • Ms. McLeod's STRIVE girls delivered gifts to the Westfield Rehabilitation Center, but they ran out. So they went to the Dollar Tree to buy more gifts. The girls wrapped the gifts on the bus and addressed cards to the staff. They went back and delivered the gifts and cards. The girls enjoyed the trip and want to go back to read to the residents.

  • Ms. Mowrey's STRIVE
    Ms. Mowrey's STRIVE boys represented East Lee's service spirit on Tuesday by helping Walmart customers push their carts to their cars and loading purchases. They worked in teams of two, offering help to everyone who left the store with a shopping cart. The boys greeted entering customers with smiles and "have a nice day!" Many people were surprised that they were not asking for donations and would not accept tips. "Why are you doing this?" one man asked. "Just to bring a smile to your face!" was the answer. So Proud of all the work our Rockets are doing to give back!

  •  Spelling Bee 2014
    East Lee students participated in Scripps Spelling Bee. Students compete first in their individual English and Language Arts classrooms. The classroom winners move on to the school level bee. This year we had 51 Rockets to participate. Scripps this year added a vocabulary piece to the competition so East Lee added a vocabulary portion as well. The students completed six rounds with every third round being a vocabulary round. At the beginning of the sixth round three students remained; two sixth graders and an eighth grader. This would be the final round with Emily Garcia once again being champion with Bethany Logan and Morgan Murry being runners up. All three students in participate in the county level bee at Lee County High School in February.

  • Sanford Breadbasket 2014  
    Ms. Slease's STRIVE group went to the Sanford Breadbasket. They planned, prepared, and served a meal of chicken noodle soup, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, fruit salad, desserts, and lemonade as well as helping to prep a few items for later this week. Not only did these girls feed almost 200 people at the breadbasket, when we went to taco bell for lunch, they also decided to each donate a dollar to feed children when they got their food. Each dollar fed four children which means these girls used their own money to feed 40+ children. They kept saying how eye opening their experience was, and how much more they want to do for the Breadbasket. They are planning a return visit after their next project--a coat drive for those who go to the Breadbasket.

Combined with last month's rice, the group has a combined total of 131,790 grains. From today through the end of December, the group has once again decided to reach the goal of 60,000 grains of rice.
