What issue did your Take Action project address?
Our Read-cycle project addressed the issues of recycling, children's literacy, and helping others in need. We realized that teachers often have to use their own money for school supplies. We realized the huge importance of children's literacy. And we didn't forget the need to recycle.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
We collected gently used books from our school by placing a bin outside the office. We collected the books, sorted them, and then offered them back to our teachers for their own personal classroom libraries. We involved students, parents, teachers, and our whole school community.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
We collected 2,014 children's books!!! After offering them back to our fabulous teachers, there were none left. It really involved our classmates and showed our school spirit. The teachers were so appreciative!
What did you learn from the experience?
We learned how to plan our personal goals and how to work together as a team. We also learned what big things you can do from simple ideas.
