Jacobson Elementary School has students who put their community first and understand the meaning of a “selfless act.”

Last year, the school’s fifth graders (now in the sixth grade) set out on a lofty goal of making scarves and dish clothes for the food shelf. The knitters made 190 dish clothes that were delivered with Christmas meals. They also made 129 scarves that have been distributed to families in need in the Rush City community.

Appreciated are the Jacobson Elementary staff members who helped support this endeavor and the community that continued to donate yarn to the student knitters.
