The Giving Trees are a long standing tradition at Rivers Edge Elementary. Every grade has a Christmas tree on the stage in the cafeteria representing a local organization. Students and staff bring in donations for the organization the grade has chosen. They are placed under the tree for the campus to see.
Once again this year REE proves it is the school with a heart of gold as the stage was overflowing with gifts, supplies, and donations.
On Thursday, December 17, assemblies were held to present the donations to representatives from the various organizations. This year the grades donated to:
Kindergarten – Dogs & Cats Forever
1st Grade – Safe Space
2nd Grade – Quantum House
3rd Grade – CareNet
4th Grade – Castle
5th Grade – Military
ESE – Hibiscus House, Jensen Beach
