Community Connect is working to create a partnership with the teachers within the Plainfield school district in order to provide resources for elementary students and improve their quality of education. We have “adopted” two fourth grade classes and two first grade classes. The teachers of these classes will work directly with us in order to give us an idea of their needs in the classroom. Through INTERACT, we will fundraise for supplies that will be sent directly to the classes as well as form relationships with the Plainfield students by sending letters, video conferencing, and attending Plainfield events/bringing them to WHRHS events.
