The Grades 5/6 class at Silver Birches Public School in North Bay collected more than double the amount they hoped to raise for Red Cross. The students want the money sent to Ukraine to support humanitarian efforts.
Staff are proud of the students’ initiative and compassion towards others in need.
Principal Alison Herst agreed to a student-run spirit week, during which students paid $1 to wear a hat or hoodie (Monday), yellow and blue (Tuesday), a TV, movie or video game clothes (Wednesday) or PJs (Thursday).
The Grades 5/6 class created posters, wrote announcements and visited each class to gather donations.
Cogeco came to do a story (scheduled to air March 10) on the student fundraiser.
Congrats to the Grades 5/6 Spartans for their efforts!
