Parthum Elementary fourth grade students and staff supported Aaron's Presents throughout the 2019-20 school year. Aaron's Presents ( is an organization that encourages children from an early age to regard themselves as members of a community, with the ability and responsibility to contribute, help and problem-solve, to think of others’ needs alongside their own, and to create meaningful connections between themselves and other human beings. Forty students worked to complete projects to support families in need across our community.

Students in Ms. Giles LifeSkills class at the Parthum Elementary are enjoying their new learning centers thanks to a generous donation from Commonwealth Motors and other community support for the project. Their room was repainted and amazing new equipment delivered that has allowed them to explore and learn with new vocabulary and hands on activities. They were excited to share with Mrs. Elizabeth Daher and her daughter Melissa when they came over from Commonwealth Motors to see the classroom transformation they supported. Thank you so much for this amazing donation!
