Mrs. Welch's Class is Taking Action!!!
My class has divided into action groups to help the people of Flint during their Water Crisis. Some groups have decided to write to government officials or do informational campaigns. Two groups will be holding fundraisers to buy water.
- Candy-Grams will be sold through next week (forms are going home today). They are $1.00 and will be delivered next Friday (form is attached as well).
- Next week is a spirit week each day. Children can bring donations for a grade-level water jug. The grade with the most donations will receive a popsicle treat next Friday.
All research and ideas came from the children during the action cycle. Thank you for your patience and support. Please forward this information to the parents on your distribution list.
From Mr. Tiemann:
