The Castleton Elementary School K-Kids are collecting new mittens, gloves, hats and scarves through Wednesday, December 13, 2023, for those in need this season! You can help them out by dropping off donations in the CES Lobby during the school day or sending your students in with donations. The K-Kids are pictured below alongside the Mitten Tree, which they’re hoping to fill up with donations! They will also be on the announcements each morning with reminders!

Kiwanis Kids (K-Kids) is a student-led service organization for Castleton Elementary School grade 5-6 students. The local Kiwanis Club of Castleton serves as the K-Kids club sponsor.
