Students Warm Up to Caring!
El Morro Elementary School’s third annual One Warm Coat Drive collected over 700 coats for the Laguna Relief and Resource Center. The month-long coat drive hosted in December was part of the El Morro’s Character Counts program that focuses on teaching students about six pillars of good character: responsibility, trustworthiness, citizenship, caring, fairness and respect. December’s pillar is “caring,” and El Morro students truly demonstrated this virtue by delivering a record number of coats. “I’m very, very proud of our students,” said Principal Chris Duddy. “The 700 coats they collected will certainly make a difference to many people this winter.”
