Elementary students holding coin drive for victims of Hurricane Sandy
Nov. 19, 2012 The teachers at Mayfield Elementary School recently had conversations with their students, in an age appropriate manner, on hurricanes. Conversations ranged from the basics of a storm in our primary classrooms to the mass devastation they can bring in our upper elementary classrooms. Students wanted to help so we decided on the coin drive. The next step was finding an appropriate place to donate to so that the money gets right to the people who need it most, that’s when we found the Empire State Relief Fund, a fund designed specifically to help families rebuild homes damaged by the storm. “I’m proud of the children of Mayfield. This school and community take pride in teaching children to care and help others in need of assistance when they truly do need it. Mayfield is a community built on support of one another. The residents of this community treat one another like family and have consistently supported one another through tough times and tragedies. Now we will demonstrate to the people of downstate that we care for people beyond our community.”
