At the beginning of this school year to “Pay It Forward,” Mrs. Annette Harris’ class started a school supply store called the “Community Corner Store” in which the students sold school supplies to staff and students at the middle school during lunch periods.
With the funds collected, students put together Community Care Bags, which included different types of candy, to present to the Police Department as well as the Fire Department in gratitude for their service to the Painesville Community and its residents.
Students presented the Community Care Bags to the policemen and firemen/women and read a note that was attached to the bags.
The Officers and Firefighters showed appreciation for the bags and enjoyed the visit of the students. They also gave the students a quick tour of their facilities and answered questions as they gave the tour.
The students do a "Pay It Forward" event once a month.
