Community Helpers at Beal School
- Cindy Coughlin, Alice B Beal Elementary School
- Let's Dance!
- Community Involvement
Our school decided this year to not only eat healthy and get active, but truly make a difference. We wanted to do something for our neighborhood community. Our student Ambassadors chose to have a Sports Day at our school. Students would pay 0.50 to wear their favorite sports team shirt or sport team colors. Our teachers, staff and students all took part in the Sports Day and we raised over $100; the money was used to purchase re-useable bags for our local food bank. The student Ambassadors were able to walk to the food bank and distribute the bags to all the neighbors waiting in line at the food bank. Our student Ambassadors were surprised at the number of people who need some food assistance. As they handed out the bags, many people were grateful for our gift to the food bank.
