Students from Colleen Potter's class were collaborating with a local not-for-profit organization called Bridging People and Places to dress teddy bears in handmade sweaters and hats for delivery to children in need. The program, called "Kids Helping Kids Bear Hugs Program," provided an opportunity for children to work on a project that directly impacts other youth, and to learn firsthand the importance of caring and sharing through volunteering. The fourth-graders were alaso creating "bear dens" decorated with positive messages for the recipients. ""
