The Gaston Evening Rotary Club donated more than 100 coats to Webb Street School along with 120 winter hats that were donated by Knot Witts, a knitting group from Southminster Church of Gastonia. The club collected the coats as one of its service projects.
“Webb Street is a public, separate school serving students with cognitive impairments in Gaston County. We serve students grades kindergarten through 12th grade and beyond. The school is divided up into teams: Elementary team, Middle School team, High School team, and Transition Academy. Students are eligible to attend Webb Street until they turn 22 years old and will receive a certificate of attendance upon graduation.
"Webb Street students are taught using the Extensions of the Common Core and are tested under the NC Extend 1 test (grades 3-8 and 10). Students also take the ACT Alternate Exam. Classes have a low student to teacher ratio, as each class has a certified teacher with at least one instructional assistant.”
Another service project of the club is to provide Birthday Celebration Bags for each of the students to take home on their birthday. Each student will receive a gift bag with cake mix, birthday plates, napkins, a book or game, stickers, gift card and a surprise. Students that have birthdays during the summer will receive their bag at the end of the school year.
The Gaston Evening Rotary club meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. For more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
