Easton Middle School Students Support People in Recovery


As part of a service learning project, students in Mrs. Lauri Bell’s 8th grade Health classes presented care packages to Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC.  The care packages will be given to people seeking treatment for addiction.  The 8th graders donated approximately 120 care packages, posters with encouraging sayings, and inspirational art work. With every care package, the students included notes of encouragement to the recipient.

Susan Knade and Matt James from Chesapeake Treatment Services, LLC visited Easton Middle School to pick up the care packages. Although this is not the first time Mrs. Bell has offered this project to her classes, the response this year was outstanding.  “I am very proud of my students for their generosity, and creativity,” said Mrs. Bell.  “It was wonderful to see their enthusiastic participation in this project!”
