Lititz, PA — On Monday, November 25th, 2019, the Warwick School District will be celebrating ‘Warwick Strong Day’ as a way to recognize the strength of the Warwick community while demonstrating thankfulness for all the support given to the district over the last year.
All buildings will be participating in various acts of kindness on that day. Students and faculty are encouraged to wear “Warwick Strong” or red and black apparel.
High school students will have the opportunity to do a kindness activity as well as a food drive.
Warwick Middle School students plan to write letters to community members and host a Community Door Decorating contest where different groups of students will pick a well known Lititz location and decorate their classroom door in that theme, such as the Wilbur Chocolate Factory, Lititz Springs Park, Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, Linden Hall and more.
At the elementary level — students at John Beck will be displaying their kindness by making suncatchers, “thank you” banners and artistic bouquets for local first responders as well as a 6th grade ‘Make a Wish’ Donation Drive. Bonfield Elementary is hosting a schoolwide donation drive where all items and proceeds will benefit Paws for Warwick along with some grade-level service projects like collecting can goods for the Lititz Community Chest, cards and treat bags for local responders. Kissel Hill students will be preparing items for Lancaster’s Local “A Night to Shine” unified prom event to celebrate all people. Each grade level will host a separate project for the evening like creating posters and party favors. Third-graders at Lititz Elementary will be helping out at Moravian Manor and St. Paul’s childcare. Second-graders will use their creativity to make placemats for Thanksgiving community meals.
“The love and support shown to our Warwick family over the last year has been unending and boundless and shown in big and small ways. It is important for us to recognize and honor that support by giving back to this amazing community who surrounded us with such love,” said Superintendent, Dr. April Hershey.
“We intend to make this a yearly tradition to celebrate our Warwick Strong commUnity by showing acts of kindness, providing community service, and reciprocating love to our community.”
