During our renovation/move in throughout the summer, we had a volunteer day where employees of AOL, parents, and staff came to school to help out. We painted the fencing outside, removed grates from doors, and even put together shelving for classrooms.
After learning in depth about crustacean life in the Chesapeake Bay, kindergarten decided to sell their artwork as post cards to donate money for Bay Restoration. We sold packs of 4 postcards with our scientific drawings on the front and information about the Maryland Blue Crab on the back for $2.00. We ended up raising $218.00!!!
