Elementary girls sew hats for neonatal intensive care unit babies

-A +A
Four Rocklin Elementary students have not only learned the new skill of sewing, but have learned the importance of giving back to the community. As part of their Service Learning project, the four third- through fifth-grade students have been meeting weekly to learn how to knit and sew baby hats for the neonatal intensive care unit at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. In addition to learning to sew hats, they also learned how to knit on small looms, under the direction of science aide Kim Pennington. Once hats were complete, each student wrote a note to the baby. On April 2, the students were given a tour of the NICU at Sutter Roseville and handed out hats and cards to new parents and grandparents. — Staff report
