A Maple Avenue class has been reading books for a cause as part of their “Buck a Book” program. The reading incentive fundraiser helped provide food, shelter and care to animals at the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS).
Students in Christina Garley’s fifth grade class have been reading books on their own time to raise money. For each book that a student completes and records in their reading log, he or she brings in $1 from home. Once $50 is collected, the class donates the money to a charitable organization. The class chose HAWS because sometimes the needs of animals are overlooked around the holidays. The activity runs throughout the school year in Maple Avenue fifth grade classes and motivates students to read at home while working for an important cause.
Maple Avenue Elementary School is located at W240 N6059 Maple Ave. in Sussex.
