Second installment in a series of student writings from Crab Orchard Elementary School relating to their experiences on their house team service learning projects as part of the the ASCD Teacher Impact Grant. The grant was given to 19 schools in the nation and Crab Orchard was the only school to receive the grant in Kentucky. The goal of the grant was to create house teams at the school.

Howard and the cakes

By Blade Nockles, Seth Horton, Sawyer Horton & Destiny Randolph
Have you ever had a cake for your birthday? If you haven’t, then come on down to sweet blessings in Lexington. Students from Crab Orchard Elementary’s Howard house took a trip to Sweet Blessings and we approve it 100 percent.
At Sweet Blessings they make you any design, flavor, color, and even any shape for your cake. We really appreciate Sweet Blessings because all of the workers are volunteers, they don’t get paid. They use their own money to get all their supplies and that is very nice. Sweet Blessings is very helpful and that’s why we should help them too.
We also got to watch them make cakes like a Lego man and a soccer ball that they made out of rice crispies. They gave us fondant to eat and it was really good. If you don’t have a birthday cake on your birthday and you’re at Crab Orchard, they will make you one. Is that good or what?
Finally, we want to say thank you to Sweet Blessing for letting us come visit. It was real fun. We appreciate you for letting us come and eat fondant.
