After reading about "Heroes to Others Near and Far" in The Hero's Trail by T.A. Barron, Miss Phelix's 8th grade ELA students were inspired to embody the characteristics of a hero that goes out of his or her way to help others.
Students researched and presented on a variety of local and national charities and voted on one winning charity that they would like to help.
Students then created art and craft pieces which feature inspirational quotes. These pieces will be auctioned off to raise money, which will then be donated to the Potsdam Humane Society-- the charity that had the most votes.
SLC 8th graders would like to encourage community members to come into school, any time between the hours of , to take part in our "lucky ticket" auction, which will benefit the Potsdam Humane Society.
