Longs Creek student council supports local families
Cheers to the Longs Creek Elementary School Student Council and staff whose generosity helped raise $650 to help families affected by the Woodhollow Apartments fire on Feb. 25. Glenn Forde, Principal at Longs Creek commented “I’m so proud of our students and what they have accomplished. Members of the student council wanted to embrace some of our self manager keys to success.”
First being "Compassion" or the understanding or empathy for the suffering of others. The students understand how devastating it can be to lose all of your belonging and have to start over. Second is "Giving" or the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return.
Student Council President, Jillian Martinez said, “We want these families to find their way back to prosperity and we do not expect anything in return”. Cindy Ford, Family Specialist at Ridgeview Elementary, accepted the check on their behalf and expressed her appreciation for what the students had done.
