The education department is holding its third annual coat drive for Hermes Elementary School in East Aurora School District 131 and can use some additional coats … 22 more to be exact, for elementary school students, grades K to 5. North Central’s education department places many of its pre-service teachers at Hermes and likes to support the school as many ways as possible.
If you can help out by donating a new or slightly used coat, stop by the third-floor lounge at Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium and choose a tag from the department Christmas tree. The tag will list the child’s name and size. Attach the tag to your donated coat and return them to the same location in the stadium by Wednesday, Dec. 16. For more information contact Kristine Servais, associate professor of education and coordinator of master of arts program in education, at 630-637-5746.
