IPS Students Collect PJs for Others this Holiday
Bedtime can be one of the favorite rituals for a child— snuggling into warm pajamas, being tucked into bed by a loving parent, then falling asleep to a favorite story.

That is a comfort most children take for granted, but Independence Primary School students recently learned about the many children who have never known that most basic pleasure. Through the Pajama Program, they learned of the children in shelters, group homes and temporary shelters who have never had a clean pair of PJs to wear to bed. Some wear their normal clothes to bed, while others wear nothing at all.

All family members, grandparents and siblings enjoyed the students' special "turkey tango" song and dance. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, each family was asked to contribute one item to the celebration meal. Parent co-chairs Amanda Jaronowski and Jen Krysiak even set up a Thanksgiving family photo area for some special holiday pictures.
