For the final 5th grade fundraising activity at Red Oak Elementary School in Highland Park, students ran an Everything Sale, donating items that they no longer need, want, or play with. The cafeteria was turned into a store and the rest of the school “shopped” during the day. Students voted to have RISE receive the proceeds from the Everything Sale, which will give a child the chance to go to school, this year and for many years to come.
Throughout the year, the 5th grade committee voted for fundraisers and charities they wanted to support with each activity. One student, whose family has been involved, proposed RISE, explained what RISE does, and it was added to the list. The committee was invested in each of the fundraisers – making flyers, posters, and broadcasting on the morning announcements. It was exciting to see their desire to support the causes they chose and realize that they could make a tangible difference.
Thank you Red Oak 5th graders!
