Sixth graders bring awareness to service project

Sixth grade science teacher Pat Locke took a trip to Haiti during April break to help a local orphanage/school.  The grade 6 project ran in three phases.  The first phase was a food/toiletry/toy drive.  The kids’ donations filled four duffle bags, and Locke brought them with her when she went to Haiti in April.

Phase 2 was a fundraiser — the kids raised close to $3,000, which will be used to support 10 children in the Marion Austin school in Haiti, which was named after a volunteer who spent much of her time in Haiti.

Phase 3 was the awareness building walk to Singing Beach and back.
