A fourth-grade math class at Mount Airy Elementary School raised more than $2,000 for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Students in Liz Haff’s math class raised $2,760.60 as part of a fundraiser benefiting divisions of the American Red Cross based in areas significantly affected by the October storm, including New York and New Jersey, according to a Carroll County Public Schools press release.
Students made shirts with messages encouraging others to donate to the Red Cross and served as ambassadors by talking to other classes about the impact of the storm. Some students also acted as data collectors and graphed how much money was collected each day, keeping track through a bar graph displayed in the school’s main office.
The fundraiser ran from Oct. 31-Nov. 9.
