The Student Senate, led by Ms. Susan Poulos, visited kindergarten and second grade classrooms at Gribbin and Deasy elementary schools to teach and create ocean-inspired paper art with the younger students. The Students Rebuild Program sponsors this project. This year’s theme is Ocean Challenge/Ocean Conservation. For every piece of artwork the students created, the Bezos Family Foundation donated $2 to programs training coastal youth in ocean conservation and coral restoration. Thank you to Addison Huvane, a Student Senate member who brought and inspired members of Student Senate to participate with this civic action project.

Special thanks to Principal Antonio Santana, Principal Francine Santoro, Principal Melanie Arfman, Mrs. Susan Poulos and all the faculty and staff who supported this program. A total of $ 1,338 in donations was raised from this project by creating a 669 pieces of artwork.
