What’s Happening at Hillside in December
Fundraisers for Syrian Refugees
In an effort to raise awareness about and funds for the Syrian refugee crisis, Karen is spearheading two mini-fundraisers at Hillside.
Fundraiser #1: Bake Sale, at school, Thursday, December 10, during lunch and afternoon break.
The 5th and 6th graders will be holding a bake sale at school on Thursday, December 3rd — selling their wares to each other, the staff, and the 7 – 12th graders (and any hungry parents who venture inside). Sigrid will be working with the 5th and 6th graders to figure out choices for what to prepare.
Fundraiser #2: Film night, at school, Friday, December 11. 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Jean will host a showing of ‘ET’ (the ultimate refugee movie), with an entrance fee of $5 per person. Refreshments will be sold (including any Bake Sale leftovers). Families and friends are welcome to attend. Come one and all!
All profits will go to Medical Teams International, a non-profit organization in Redmond, which puts together medical and hygiene kits to be used in refugee camps and has a very good financial and efficacy track record.
Please let us know if you have other ideas for Hillside students to help out or to raise awareness for the plight of the dispossessed here and abroad.
