Students in Robyn Yorker’s classroom at the Stepping Stones Day Program did more than collect candy on Halloween.
They learned important lessons about how they could make a difference for other children around the world by collecting donations for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Students created posters, which asked people to support the effort, and placed them throughout the Fulton Education Center.
Just before Halloween, they carried their bright orange Trick or Treat for UNICEF boxes, and were able to collect $80 in donations from staff members of the Center for Instruction, Technology & Innovation and Fulton City School District.
As part of this experience, the class was able to answer the question “How can we demonstrate global citizenship?”
Stepping Stones Day Program is a collaborative effort between CiTi and Hillside Children’s Center which provides a structured, small-group environment that helps students overcome emotional and behavioral challenges so they may return to their home school district.
