OSWEGO, NY – The fifth grade students from Mrs. Graber, Ms. Lewis and Ms. Conte’s classes at Kingsford Park School were recently involved in a special fundraiser to raise money for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

American Red Cross Oswego Branch Director Danielle Hayden receives a donation from a few of the many fifth grade students at Kingsford Park School who participated in a Spell-A-Thon to raise money for the devastation following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The students held a Spell-A-Thon.

Fifth graders asked friends, family members, neighbors, or co-workers to pledge an amount of money for each correctly spelled word.

The children then studied a 100-word spelling list.

Once the Spell-A-Thon was held and the money was collected, it was donated to the American Red Cross so that it may reach those in need.
