— As part of their holiday celebrations, Churchill Road students participated in a variety of community service projects. Kindergarten students decorated gift bags and filled them with school supplies, while second graders made scarves, both for students at Churchill’s buddy school. Fifth and sixth grade classes recognized the efforts of U.S. troops by sending letters to servicemen overseas to brighten their holidays.
