Mount Horeb students help out Mazomanie


September 6, 2018

Right around the time the rain began to fall and the floodwaters started surging into area homes, businesses and schools, students at Children's Community School (CCS), a Montessori daycare and school in Mount Horeb, were reading a book about sharing. When "Miss Martha" Pfaff, CCS's director and a pre-school teacher there, learned that Lifecycle Kids Child Care and Enrichment Center, located on Hudson St. in Mazomanie, had been flooded, she decided it was a perfect time to help, and to put recent lessons about sharing into action. On Friday morning, Pfaff gathered children in Mount Horeb and explained to them that their counterparts in Mazomanie, some of whom formerly attended CCS, needed new school supplies, because floodwaters had damaged theirs. When she asked the children how sharing with the kids in Mazomanie would make them feel, they answered in a single chorus: "Happy!" Then they gathered supplies, bagged them, and helped load them into Pfaff's car for delivery. Pictured above, Lainey Allen selects items to be sent. Photo by Matt Geiger.
