Our caps

It is simple to be involved, just purchase a gallon of Prairie Farms Milk and send the cap to school with a student, Karin Busiere, high school librarian will take care of the rest. She added, “The community is fantastic about supporting the school district and I hope this will be one more way they can assist with educating our children.” If children bring caps in by Feb. 10 there is a small incentive available.

The National Honor Society of Elsberry High School visits the residents at Elsberry Health Care Center as part of their community service activities.  The group schedules visits once a month to visit and make crafts with the residents.  In addition to the crafts, the students have brought artwork to give the residents made by elementary students or NHS members.  Mrs. Jones’ FACS class also provides cookies for the residents.


On February 28, fourteen members attended the visit.  Twelve of the members were new inductees attending the Elder Care visit for the first time.  They were accompanied by two veteran members and the faculty sponsors.  In preparation for the visit, NHS members painted rainbow door hangers to give the residents.  The students visited with the residents, sharing stories of family, school, and life experiences while assisting them with a craft.  The residents enjoyed making snowmen and penguins and visiting with the younger generation.  


On the bus ride home, the new members shared their individual experiences of the day and talked about how much fun was had talking to the residents.  Both students and residents are looking forward to the next visit scheduled for April 4.
