SCHOOL and SPORTS Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District Norwalk Warriors Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Project to Raise Money for the Blank Park Zoo Grace Kiboko, Grace Laman and Tarynn Rodman. Photo submitted. In the fourth grade, students are encouraged to work on passion projects. This is a study Of something the child wants to learn about. With our reading program as well as other subject areas, it is encouraged to extend learning in this manner. At the beginning of the month, three students came up to me (Debbie Stanley's class) proposing an idea for a community service project. They researched a couple ideas and decided to work on a project from the website of the Blank Park Zoo. The girls found that money could be donated to help with the care of some of the animals there. Excitement for this project began to increase and it was decided through a class vote to help with the Red Panda, the giraffe, the lion and the wallaby. About this time, the sad news was revealed that the lion at the Zoo had to be euthanized because it had cancer. We were upset about this, but it was decided to still include the lion in our journey to raise money. After presenting the idea to Principal Jill Anderson, the planning began for how we could raise money to donate in the name of these animals. The first idea was to sell donated Water to Lakewood students during the week of Iowa Assessments. The following week we added snack items to our concessions. Parents did a great job donating items to sell as well as Fareway and Scott's Foods. Each morning a group of students from our class would manage the concession table selling items to students as they arrived each morning. This was very popular! We had many, many students visiting the table each morning to help with the project and purchasing items that were for sale. We are now winding down with our sales. We have also added donation jars to Casey's, Wendy's and Fareway and some of the workplaces of the parents in our dass. We plan to bring our journey to a dose at the end of April. The good news fight now is that the students have collected over $500 at this time. This is AMAZING! An artide will update everyone after we return from a presentation to the zoo Thursday, May 10. If you would like to donate to our project, feel free fo drop off money to the Lakewood Elementary office.
