I am the Guidance counselor at Highland Elementary which represents Riverside Elementary in Riverside, Iowa and and Ainsworth Elementary in Ainsworth Iowa. There are less than 300 students in both schools put together. We did a coin drive several weeks ago and collected $2,300.

Kids brought in their piggy banks and raided their Dad's pockets, with permission of course. This was donated to the Red Cross through the Blood and Bucks campaign done bt KCRG in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

I hope this will help add to your total.

Of the 51 schools in our district, many have been collecting money and supplies for the American Red Cross and a local help organization, Heart to Heart International. As of Sept. 16, our schools raised more than $75,000 with the help of matching funds donated by Kansas City Power and Light. Several schools are continuing to collect donations, and I believe by the end of the month we will have surpassed $90,000. I have not yet heard from all of our buildings, but I am keeping a total that I will forward you by Oct. 7. If there is anything else you need, please let me know.

I just talked to the person in the Clark County School District Communications Office who posted that last note to confirm their total and get more details.

Each school in their district raised funds in different ways:

Lemonade Stands, School Competitions, etc.

All of the money went to hurricane relief:

*Some schools actually adopted schools on the Gulf Coast and sent the money directly to those schools.

*They also donated to the Red Cross and the Salvation Army as well as other hurricane relief charitites that each school selected.

Our thanks to them and to all the kids across the country.

As our 10-year-old CEO told our Governor on Friday:

"If each kid of 17 million kids collected just FOUR QUARTERS on Halloween night, we'll have raised $17 Million dollars for hurricane relief!"

Every kid, every coin counts!

Assistant Principal Jennifer Snead and music teacher Kathy Bennett promised students some extra added incentives if they raised $2,000. Snead said she’d dye her hair red (in honor of the Red Cross) Bennett promised the students that they could throw pies at her if they raised even a penny more than $2,000.

The incentives worked; within two weeks, students and staff raised more than $2,300 for the PTA to present to the Red Cross.

One Tuesday, October 18th, Snead faced the music and Bennett braved 52 thrown cream pies on Catoctin’s stage. Snead, her hair a flaming red, invited student representatives from each class to come up and throw a pie at Bennett. Thirty-six cans of whipped cream were used to construct the pies, which soon littered the tarp-covered stage as well as Bennett.

The finale came when PTA officers donated extra funds so that they could pepper Bennett at close range. As Snead stood to one side of the barrage, it definitely appeared that she had accepted the better of the incentives.

That changed when students began chanting “Hug her! Hug her!” Bennett complied with the students’ wishes, leaving whipped cream on Snead from head to toe.

As school opened this fall, Hurricane Katrina hit the United States, and again, the Blue Ridge students came through to help those in need.

To encourage grade-level spirit, there was a lunchtime competition between the sixth and seventh grades. During each of the four lunch shifts during September, coins were collected. A total of $6,085 was collected through this effort.

Through various other fundraising projects, such as Leo Club’s door-to-door campaigning and a bake sale at the Purcellville Giant, checks from parents and other contributions, a grand total of $11,253.80 was earned.

This year’s fund-raising started on Tuesday, September 6th. It began with a $1,000 challenge. The goal was to raise $1,000 in one week. In the first two days of fund-raising, students had far surpassed their goal, raising more than $2,000. By the end of the week they had quadrupled the goal by raising more than $4,300. Due to the fact that this tragedy occurred at the beginning of the school year, the high school had no committees organized to run the fund-raising. Students collected money during lunch shifts. The Key Club officers that helped with this effort included Missy M (president), Meagan G, Kelsey B, Ashleigh A, Jake M, Ally M, and Dana S. The SCA officers who also helped were: Chris B(president), Lauren L, Ariel G, Kathleen S, Lauren D, and Peter L. In addition, a Social Awareness Club, led by Jessica D, raffled off tickets to a Washington Redskins game that netted several hundred dollars.
