Parkwood first-graders lead school in raising funds for hurricane relief
Thursday, September 28, 2017
First-graders at Parkwood Elementary School prompted their school to help others by creating a fund-raiser to support hurricane relief efforts. Through the leadership of these students, Parkwood raised more than $900 to donate to the Red Cross.

The school also took the opportunity to turn the fund-raiser into a lesson on money by requesting students and staff bring in different pieces of money for each day: pennies on Monday, nickels on Tuesday, dimes on Wednesday, quarters on Thursday and dollars on Friday. The students' teachers are Jessica Gerst, Kristin Gosa, Greg Stoltz and Jen Ulmer.
