Meadowlawn Students Learn To Knit Away Cold

Meadowlawn Intermediate School fourth- and fifth-graders have found a way to get creative, learn a skill, and spend some time with classmates a couple of afternoons each month. And, they make something to give back to the community.

Those “somethings” are knitted hats for people in need.

The Meadowlawn knitting club meets twice a month, and includes some 30 students, said Shelly Roth, a fourth-grade teacher and one of the advisers for the club. The club knits winter caps, some of which the students can keep for themselves or give as gifts. The kids also donate some of their creations.

Last year, the students donated 96 hats to Victory Kitchen. This year, the club has a goal of 100 hats to donate, Mrs. Roth said. So far, they have 81 hats toward their goal.

In addition to Mrs. Roth, fourth-grade teacher Julie Mack and para-professional Lynn Fox also are advisers for the club. It meets on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
