Middle school students, along with grade seven integrated studies students, helped students on Hooper’s Island who were devastated by Hurricane Isabel. They donated a truckload of bath items, non-perishable food and shoes. Teachers Shay McPhail, Angie Bucy and Lisa West have organized a emergency relief fund program for middle school students in need of necessities due to an emergency such as fire. The winner of the first Cardboard Regatta was Jose Vasquez. The competition, under the supervision of Sam Ellis, took place at Trap Pond. Seventh graders Kelsey Murrell and David Bradshaw attended the National Youth Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., recently. They met with 200 other students from across the country to learn about leadership skills and history.
