Nikki Simons' second grade class at Cheyenne Elementary worked all year to raise $550 to support the work of the Humane Society of Macomb.
Some spare change from the playground, $5 for washing dad's car and the contents of several piggy banks totaled together helped Nikki Simons and her second-grade Cheyenne Elementary Superstars raise $550 for the Humane Society of Macomb. This year is the 18th that Simons and her class have collected "Coins for Critters." On May 31, having raised a total of $550, the class took a field trip to the Humane Society of Macomb in Shelby Township to meet and pet some of the "critters" who would benefit from their donations. For more information on how you as a community member can support the Humane Society, visit the organization's website.

With no money, no transportation and no way to intercept mom and dad’s letter to Santa, elementary-age children can be left in a lurch during the holiday shopping season. "I want to shop for everybody," said Bradley Szarejko, 8. Like many his age, the Cheyenne student knows who to buy for, but relies on the creativity and convenience of his parent-teacher organizations to get the job done. “The reason we have a Santa Shop at our school is to give the kids a way to shop for their family and friends all on their own,” said Tanya Wright, Ojibwa Elementary's Santa Shop chairperson. “I see the enjoyment and smiles on their faces as they are walking …
