AIP SCHOOL WIDE PROJECT

Christmas Tree Decorations

WHY ?

 

Welcome to AIP GIVES 2022! This school wide project's focus is to teach students the power of giving, under the principles of Christ. The story of the "Good Samaritan" (Luke 10: 30-37) teaches us that helping others allows us to embody the heart and mind of Jesus. As the story ends, Jesus challenges each of us to "Go and do likewise!" At AIP, we want to not only be hearers of the word but also doers.

WHO?

 

All of us! This project involves the entire school and there is a special portion where AIP families may choose to take on an additional role.

WHEN?

 

PROJECT START DATE: 11/14/22

PROJECT DUE DATE: 12/1/22  (ALL ITEMS MUST BE TURNED IN ON THIS DATE!)

WHAT?

STUDENT PROJECT(ACADEMIC):

Students will fill one 6qt clear shoe box container with special items for a child of their same age and gender. The goal is for students to make conscious decisions about giving to others. The student will also tape an age appropriate note, letter, or card to the recipient with Christmas wishes, on the outside of wrapped the container. Please do not seal the envelope.  Letters will be translated for our international recipients. The container is to be wrapped in Christmas paper twice. Once wrapped, the top of the container and card are to be labeled with the appropriate gender and age (ex: Boy, Age 8). Please be sure to mark the container using a permanent marker so the information is easily displayed against the wrapping paper.  In addition, students will have a reflection assignment, provided by their teacher, that will correlate with this project. Teachers will provide the  details for  the assignment portion based on their lesson plans.

FAMILY COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT (OPTIONAL):

AIP along with our partner church, Welcome Hill Baptist Church, is supporting The Bear Tree Children's Christmas. The mission of this organization is to find families to support children in need for Christmas. AIP has gained 26 children that need our help. We invite families to come to our adoption tree and select an ornament with a child's name. Once you have selected an ornament, you will receive a wish list. Wish list items do not exceed $50.  Please place all gifts, unwrapped, in gift bags labeled with the child's name. There is nothing more powerful than to know that God is using to be a blessing.  We invite your family to be a cheerful giver!
