Lyman Students Break Record With Reading Service Project

from Spartanburg District 5 News

Students at Lyman Elementary School have opened up a *new chapter*, on a traditional service project, and shown what it really means to give back to their community!For another year,

For another year, 4th grade students at Lyman participated in their annual project, “Read To Feed The Hungry”, benefiting the Greer Soup Kitchen and Middle Tyger Community Center.Teacher, Patti Simmons, started the project back in 2002 and it has grown every year. Students set a goal of reading a certain number of books during a 2-week “reading blitz”, and then collect pledges from friends and family members. The idea is to collect so many canned food items for each book they read.

The much-needed food will go to stock the kitchen’s pantry and feed homeless residents and families in and around Greer for months to come.

Amazing job, Lyman! We are so proud of you!
