My 4 Peak Performer students (Clarke Whitehead, Nathan Hyde, Zack Kierstein and Jordan Trout) and I challenged our Academy to raise $2,500–working with Habitat for Humanity– to help build a permanent home in Haiti following the recent earthquake.
You rose to that challenge.
At our Board Break-a-Thon Saturday, Ms. Michelle announced that everyone (so far) have collected…
…with some pledges still outstanding.Â So, if you are thinking, “oops, I missed it,” you have this week to get your donations in.Â Let’s break $3,000 before we send a final total to Habitat for Humanity.
The Silent Auction run by Ms. Michelle is what put us over the top.Â This was our first silent auction at the Academy and the timing couldn’t have been better.Â Thank you to everyone for the generous donations to the auction.
I’m so proud, not only of the Peak Performers for leading a successful fundraiser, but for everyone who participated, helped and donated.Â We know our recent recession is only temporary, but most Haitians live in daily poverty and raising money to build a home for people we will never meet has been the high point of 2010, so far.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for contributing to our Academy Mission–To Change Lives.
Keep your eyes open for pictures of the event which I will post was soon as I get them from un-official school photographer Tatum McKenzie who took some super shots of the break-a-thon.
