Last week, the 3rd graders spent an hour every morning before school selling delicious bagels for $2.00 each. They spend all year studying the seven continents and the most effective way to help in far away places is to donate money to existing organizations. By the end of the week, they had raised $3,760. With that money, the 3rd Grade class had to calculate their profit. The profits were then divided evenly among all forty-five 3rd graders and the students then appropriated the funds to the charities as they saw fit. The charities they could pick from were the Heifer Foundation, the World Food Program, and the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled. They finished this project by writing out checks to their chosen charities. Visit the 3rd Grade hallway to see these checks!
