MSS Students Raise Money for Victims of Hurricane Matthew
A group of Main Street School fifth-grade students is leading the effort to raise money for victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. Through a number of schoolwide events, they’ve raised more than $550 and will continue to collect donations until the end of November.
As part of the efforts, students on the leadership team presented important information to their peers on what it means to be an engaged global citizen. During the PJ Day and Hat Day fundraisers, the students asked their peers to donate a dollar to the cause and wear pajamas and hats to school as a way to show their support. The next fundraisers will include a Sock Day celebration, to be held on Nov. 15, Inside Out/Backwards Day on Nov. 23 and a T-shirt sale from Nov. 28-30.
“Thanks to everyone for supporting our students’ work as global citizens,” Principal Joyce Chapnick said. “As a school community, it is our responsibility to engage our students to take action in issues affecting others in our society.”
Wednesday, November 23rd is an early dismissal day, and there is no school Thursday and Friday, November 24th and 25th.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
