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.
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.
