Just so you know, the challenge to collect 1000 pairs of socks by the students and staff of our school was accepted and not quite met. We did collect 984 pairs of socks though! Shout out to my community team member, D. Silvas, whose class won the Middle School Challenge with 154 pairs of socks! Our community collected more than 340 pairs in all!
Remember, teaching students about social issues like homelessness, hunger, and poverty in their communities, is important. Being aware of what is happening outside their front door, gives them focus and passion about how to change what is happening around them. That’s learning you can’t get in a textbook.
On to the next challenge we go!
In the meanwhile… change the world… CHANGE IT!
