5th grade is having a contest to see which homeroom can raise the most money for UNICEF. This is through Miss Stoneman’s ELA class.
Scholastic has partnered with UNICEF to do Trick or Treating for UNICEF. The money raised will help children that are in need of clean water, mosquito nets to protect against Malaria, school supplies for refugee kids, food for malnourished children, and many other things. I sent home small orange boxes that show how much some of those things cost. Students do not have to participate if they do not want to but the class that raises the most money will get an extra recess. Also, the student who raises the most for each class will win a prize.
Students can take their box when they go trick or treating and ask for donations, they can ask family or family friends, or they can put their own money in. I have also told them that they may ask neighbors but ONLY IF YOU SAY THAT IT IS OKAY! I also told them to let their parents know if they are planning to ask while they go trick or treating.
Students can turn in change, dollar bills, or checks. Checks should be make out to UNICEF USA
