Students in Action

Inspired by their Noah's Ark school tour, four second-grade classes at Clover Avenue Elementary led a school-wide sock drive, donating more than 180 pairs of socks to Chrysalis, a nonprofit dedicated to helping unhoused individuals find and retain employment. Students also created “postcards of positivity,” filled with messages of encouragement and support for Chrysalis participants.
