Students in Kelly Nelson’s fourth and fifth grade class at Harpswell Community School raised $400 for Save the Children Ukraine in the first two weeks of May.
Each class at Harpswell Community School read the book “Change Sings” by Amanda Gorman during National Poetry Month in April, then selected a service project to complete. The students in Nelson’s class voted to collect change to help kids affected by war in Ukraine.
Other classes collected donations for the animal shelter, sent cards to a nursing home and picked up litter around school grounds.
