During the holiday season, students of Penny DePasquale and Dawn Wilkinson at Hoover Middle School collected mittens to donate to the Ken-Ton Closet. As the donations came in, students hung them on a "Mitten Tree" they built with books in the hallway. The students collected more than 100 pair of mittens, and learned to embrace the spirit of giving.
