Pinecrest Academy is a second-year charter school in Northern Nevada. As we read “A Long Walk to Water” with our students, we wanted to incorporate a service-learning project. Our 5th-grade students are helping to drive our fundraiser as they learn valuable skills along with the knowledge that they have the power to change the world.
“Our first fundraiser was a success! As a school, we participated in a Minute To Win It spare change challenge. Our 5th graders, made video announcements, hung posters, and counted LOTS of change. As a student body, we raised $2821.85!!!! We offered a popsicle party to the two classes who raised the most money. Congratulations to Mrs. Chatham and Miss. Siporen’s classes.” – Pinecrest Academy
