Fourth-graders raise $1,007 a few coins at a time
When Teacher Anne Leque challenged her fourth-graders to come up with a service project to raise money for the Holiday Angels program, she never imagined they would earn $1,007.97.
Starting Oct. 20 students sold 25 and 50 cent trinkets and treats each morning before school.
The students "owned the idea" Leque said.
"This project was created, named and manned by my students and exceeded every expectation I had," she said.
