Our sixth grade students completed yet another Pay-it-Forward project this year, continuing our Recess Coin Carnival tradition. Thanks to our 6th graders’ hard-work and dedication, Conestoga grades K-5’s participation and incredibly generous donations, as well as kind Conestoga staff contributions of all sorts, we raised $809.03, which converts to over 36,000 Sudanese pounds. As an additional bonus, we will be donating the collected funds to an organization dedicated to providing water to needy Sudanese children. A special thank you goes to Mr. Mattern, who took the time to connect a wonderful reading unit, A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park, to this cause.
Again, many thanks to all of you for your support in this and all things here at Conestoga; it is blatantly apparent that we, as a school community, really do care.
