Binion Students are Reminded About the C.O.R.E. values of empathy and kindness

For the seventh straight year, Binion Elementary counselors have encouraged teachers, students and staff to participate in Operation Christmas Child, a non-profit providing gift-filled shoe boxes to be given around the world at Christmas. These shoe boxes will be the only gift many children in other countries will receive. Binion students are reminded about the C.O.R.E. values of empathy and kindness while working to gather the small toys and gifts for the boxes. Each box contains small, age-appropriate gifts of stickers, school supplies, toys, etc. brought by students in the classes. This year Binion has a record 51 boxes filled for this organization–this is 17 more than the previous record.
