8th Grade Government Toy Drive
Toy Drive

Please donate new, unwrapped toys to the HKMS 8th Grade Government Toy Drive through Tuesday, December 18.We need toys for students in kindergarten through fourth grade. The children range in age from 5-10. Some suggested toy donations include

  • basketballs
  • footballs
  • action figures
  • Legos
  • Barbies
  • crafts

No books, stuffed animals, or toys that require batteries please, unless batteries are supplied.


Students should bring toys to their homerooms.  


Over the last several years the Easton community has donated thousands of toys for students that are less fortunate during the holiday season. Without the toys donated by you, some of these students may not have a gift to open up during this time of year. You have the ability to really impact a lot of young lives. This year we have set of goal to collect 500 toys and deliver them on an 8th grade field trip to the James J. Curiale School in Bridgeport on Wednesday, Dec 19th. We need all of your help in order to reach this goal.


The Toy Drive is an Advisory Colors Wars activity. For every toy brought in, your child’s Advisory Group will earn 1 point. The advisory from grades 6 or 7 who brings in the most toys will earn a pizza party. The 40 spots for the field trip will be filled by 8th graders based on a lottery of toys donated, wrapping paper donated, and days spent after school wrapping the presents. Eighth grade students can sign up for wrapping presents by following the link posted on the 8th Grade Government Website and filling out the electronic form. Students can also access the form here:

On behalf of the HKMS Student Government and the eighth grade class, we thank you in advance for your support and generosity.  We are very motivated to reach our goal of 500 toys to brighten the holidays for the students of the James J. Curiale School in Bridgeport. We could not do it without you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
