Student Council hosts Walk for Water

The Student Council at Washington Elementary in Ely, MN sponsored their school’s walk for water this year — and all the elementary students participated!

Student Council members also gave presentations about water access and collected donations for Kipsigor Primary School in Kenya. Way to go, students!

“Key Club, from the High School, joined us as well. Student Council members shared a presentation with classrooms to teach students about the issues some school children have because of a lack of access to clean water. Classrooms then collected donations before and after the walk.  Students were challenged to give up a treat and instead donate to the Walk for Water.  They were giving from the heart.”
