Students Raise Funds: Water for Sudan

7th grade students raise funds for the organization: Water for Sudan

7th grade students read and learned about Salva Dut in the novel A Long Walk to Water. After learning that he created the organization Water for South Sudan, which helps build and sustain wells to provide clean water for villages in South Sudan, students wanted to help out.  The 7th students were inspired and helped raised funds for Salva Dut's organization. The students beat their initial goal of $500 and raised over a $1,000 in two weeks. We are so proud of the empathy, collaboration, and passion our 7th students demonstrated as they raised fund for a great cause. Awesome job Mavericks!
