Lisa Chase's 5th and 6th grade class
Whiz Kid's Accomplishment:
These kids have raised $500 in three days for endangered whooping cranes through a bake sale. Their original goal was only $50, but once they exceeded that goal, they decided to help the vicitms of the earthquake in Japan.
Whiz Kid's Key to Awesomeness:
The students studied whooping cranes and wanted to help raise money that would assist them in reaching Florida safely. "When so many teachers helped bake over the weekend, and brought an enormous amount of food we made our goal in 20 minutes," Lisa Chase, special education teacher said.
All the money that was raised after that first hour, is being donated to the survivors of the earth quake and tsunami in Japan. The children will have worked the bake sale for five days, with three lunch hours every day. One of the students' classmates is from Japan, and still has family there.
"We hope to aid them specifically," Chase said.
