Crocheting, learning, and giving back – it's a beautiful journey of skill-building and empathy!

Crocheting, learning, and giving back – it's a beautiful journey of skill-building and empathy!

Last week, some of our 8th-grade young men went on a mission to create something very unique through the creation of adorable baby hats for preemies and discovering a whole new side to themselves, thanks to the assistance of Tatiana Tyson, a Heartland Community Member, and Community in Schools, and our 8th-grade counselor, Mrs. Adams. 

In addition to teaching these young men the craft of crocheting, Mrs. Tyson is giving her time to teach them about the long-lasting positive effects one person can have on families as they start their journey in the NICU. Mrs. Tyson talked about how much it meant to her and her family to receive handmade hats for her children based on her experience.

CMS Community in Schools Coordinator, Mrs. Westlake, has played a pivotal role in this project. She personally delivered the materials and shared her knowledge with our students. Her collaboration with her company ensured that all the supplies required for this unique experience were secured. Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Westlake are hopeful that our children will be able to personally deliver these masterpieces to a local hospital and witness firsthand the positive impact that kindness can have on people's lives.

Great job, Crandall Middle School!
