In observation of World Water Day on March 22, students and staff made a generous donation to Water for Sudan, a non-profit organization which provides access to clean water in desolate communities in that country. The fundraiser, a Blue Dress Down Day, was run by the 7th grade who were inspired by a novel that completed in class – A Long Walk, by Linda Sue Park.
Various activities happened in classes during the day, including a “water race” for 7th graders. Click here for the Upper House News Team’s account of the 7th grade World Water Day experience. It was written by David O. (lead writer), Nicole D., Darley P,, Kiara S., and Felipe s. David and Kiara took the photos.
Among the other water -related activities: 5th graders learned the best way to filter dirty water in science lab and several 7th grade students read the book Nya’s Long Walk Linda Sue Park to kindergartners!
