Service Learning

Students from Ms. Woznick’s and Ms. Cavallaro’s English 7 classes participated in a fundraiser for the Water for Sudan organization. The students read the novel Long Walk to Water, which chronicles the difficulties experienced by water-starved communities throughout Africa. To raise funds, the students decided to forgo their purchases of bottled water and other drinks for several weeks, drink tap water instead, and donate the money saved to the Water for Sudan organization to help its efforts to build wells in communities throughout the Sudan. More than $1,000 was donated to the cause.
