Hands of Gratitude 2019

On Friday, November 15, 2019, the entire district plus an estimated 100 parent and community volunteers will engage in a one of a kind experience for the second consecutive year called Hands of Gratitude.
Hands of Gratitude is about Impacting lives of both the participants and the 3D printed device recipients.  Hands of Gratitude is about realizing that each of us can do incredible things.  Hands of Gratitude is about empowerment, empathy and embracing our differences.

After two large, school-wide assemblies at Stevenson Elementary and Grandview Heights High School, students, kindergarten through twelfth grade, will work in teams to assemble a prosthetic limb (arm and hand) to be given to a child who has lost their limb due to landmine explosions, birth conditions, and/or accidents. In two and half hours, our district hopes to assemble approximately 260 limbs.  The recipients of these devices span the entire country and globe.
