Empty Bowl Community Service Project

On Monday, April 23rd, Mrs. Doyle’s and Miss SanGiovanni’s 5th-grade students collaborated with Mrs. Motta’s and Mrs. Massa’s high school art students on an Empty Bowl community service project to raise money for the Pembroke Food Pantry.  Together high school students assisted 5th graders in creating clay soup bowls that will be available for purchase at Hobomock Elementary’s Art Show.  All proceeds will go to the Pembroke Food Pantry to help families in our community.  Mrs. Motta’s son, Casey, is a 5th-grade student and our classes read the novel, Wonder.  This community service collaboration was planned to give the students first-hand experience with the “pay it forward” spirit of the novel.
