Elementary STUCO + Fundraiser = Serious GREEN!

Elementary STUCO + Fundraiser =  Serious GREEN!After researching long and hard for a local cause, our STUCO executive council and general assembly agreed that promoting the idea of Earth Day Everyday while raising money to support a local children’s hospital would be a great thing.  They were right.

Building on last year’s theme, The Power of One, our council made lists of suggestions from classroom ideas regarding how we all could be greener one decision at a time.  A video was produced by the executive council to remind everyone how easy and important this is.

Elementary STUCO + Fundraiser = Serious GREEN!In addition, we teamed up with organizers of an annual event at Parkside, Thalassemia Day.  This year we will be working with Julie Kim, a grade-eleven student, to plan and host a carnival type event on May 19th.  On this day, a group of local children will come to Parkside, be paired up with an SIS student and spend a morning playing games, doing crafts, having lunch and just being a kid.  Children suffering from this genetic blood disease suffer from a range of symptoms from mild anemic and malarial type issues to requiring blood transfusions every 4-6 weeks.  Unfortunately, these children do not lead a normal life.  We hope to bring a morning of joy to these young people.

Elementary STUCO + Fundraiser = Serious GREEN!In order to raise some funding, our STUCO sold Earth-O-Grams.  These were messages about Earth Day awareness written on half sheets of one-sided reused paper with a Super Pencil attached.  We sold 500 messages and raised 2950RMB.  This money and our time will be made available to make Thalassemia Day a success.

Regarding the organization and planning, our president, Terry said, “I think it was a great experience for all of us.  A big thanks to all the students who supported us.  The system and teamwork at the end was efficient.”  We will let you know how the event turns out.
