HOW TO SURPASS A GOAL: Recently, Mrs. Johnson’s fourth grade class at Gold Oak Elementary School challenged their school to raise money for the “Save the Children Foundation” operating in Japan due to the recent tsunami disaster. Mrs. Robert’s first grade class raised the most money. Mrs. Hayden’s second grade class had the most creative collection box. Both classes were rewarded with yummy brownies. The goal was to raise $450. After all was said and done, $1,097 was raised. It’s a great feeling when children reach out to other children. Thank you, students, one and all.
