Pixie Hill Preschool focused learning on “needs” versus “wants” for the holiday season.

To give the students a hands-on experience, Pixie recently ran a school wide food drive to support Mercer Island Youth and Family Services. Students went through their own cupboards and shopped with their parents to purchase their favorite non-perishable lunch items. Students hand delivered the boxes of food and saw firsthand how important it is to be thankful for what we have and to help others who may be in need.

School officials said this was a heart-warming learning experience that demonstrated the power of people coming together.
