Building a Better Community: We had a successful quarter. The students were successful in many areas. Three students collected over 300 books and donated them to a local school. Two students scheduled a screening of “Girl Rising” and had over 100 people attend. We had a group of students represent our class at the Walk for Sudan. Along with these accomplishments, the class collected ten large boxes of clothing that was donated to the Red Cross to help victims of the floods. All the students in this class should be proud of their accomplishments. Please see Mrs. Bainbridge if you are interested in continuing our work as part of an after school group.
