Donations Stuffed with Love

Joseph A. Edgar fourth-grade students showcased their creativity this fall as they fashioned baby scarecrows and raised more than $1,400 for the Rocky Point Teachers’ Association Kids in Need Fund.
During the week before halloween, each student constructed individual scarecrows using colorful decorations and embellishments. The completed works of art were then placed on display in the hall outside the classrooms and the entire student body was invited to visit the scarecrow patch and vote for their favorite one by depositing coins in its corresponding donation box.
 
This project has been a long-standing tradition at JAE, dating back to 1999 when it was first introduced by former teacher Sandy Finn Grunner.
