After reading A Long Walk to Water in language arts earlier this fall, Athens Academy’s fifth grade class decided to take the Iron Giraffe Challenge, with the goal of raising $3,000 to support the drilling of new wells for water through the organization Water for South Sudan. The students are excited to announce that they have exceeded their goal, raising a total of $4,766.56 for the charitable organization.
As in previous years, the students needed to find a creative way to raise the money, and together with their teachers they decided to sell pandemic-related items. They created a website and sold masks, hand sanitizer, and lanyards. The students also participated as vendors in the Athens Academy Holiday Market on November 19, where they raised over $1,000 in one day.
