6th Graders Taking on Academic and Service Projects

6th grade students of Christina Davis have been busy opening their minds and their hearts of late. While reading the book Refugee, they studied refugee stories and sponsored a collection drive of items needed by our local International Rescue Committee. Their efforts yielded a great response. While hearing about the refugee crisis brought on by Russia's attack on Ukraine, students decided to hold a bake sale to raise money for the World Central Kitchen, an aid organization founded by chefs that has set up mobile kitchens at multiple locations where Ukraine refugees are arriving. These mobile kitchens have already served over one million meals there. 6th graders baked a huge array of delicious treats and yesterday made $353 for World Central Kitchen at their sale. Wow! In science class, these students dissected owl pellets, identified the bones, and will be looking at the transfer of energy between trophic levels. Check out some photos from these projects.
