This Grade 3 CJ Schurter Elementary School class raised $2,322 selling 1,161 candygrams on Valentine’s Day.
“I was completely humbled by how many candygrams were ordered – every student in our school received at least one candygram from a friend,” says Karen Dana, who teaches the class.
This money was combined with money raised at a Gift Giving Extravaganza at Christmas time for a total of $2,419.85 raised.
Dana says, “The students in Grade 3 learn about Ukraine as part of our social studies curriculum, so they chose to send the money to a group that can help the people of Ukraine during the conflict happening there.”
