Corpus Christi Grade 2 Students Making Mats for Haiti

The Grade 2 class at Corpus Christi Catholic Elementary School invited parents and grandparents in to help them make mats out of recycled plastic bags for Haiti.

May 25, 2010 - Corpus Christi teacher Daniela Visentin invited parents and grandparents of her Grade 2 students in to learn how to turn milk bags into bed mats for Haiti.  The Gr. 2 students initiated the milk bag collection at Corpus Christi school.  Parents and grandparents joined their efforts by lending a helping hand in cutting the bags into loops while the students linked them together and rolled them into a ball.  Another team of students learned the basics of crocheting the "plastic" into a bed mat.
