Grass Valley Charter students to help tornado victims

Grass Valley Charter is trying to instill a sense of service and compassion in its students with recent donation efforts.

The school is taking donations for Oklahoma tornado victims, which are collected in jars and boxes schoolwide.

“We are collecting spare change and dollars, whatever we can for the tornado victims,” said Lori Davis, third-grade teacher at Grass Valley Charter.

After teachers discussed the tornado in class, students came up with a coin drive and action plan, made fliers to distribute throughout the school and brought jars and boxes to collect money, Davis said.

“Service and compassion are some of our design principals, so we’ve been referring back to that,” Davis said.

Students expressed their interest and desire to contribute to the cause.

“We all help people and we just want to help in any way we can,” said Sage LaHue, third grader.

To donate, visit the office of Grass Valley Charter at 225 South Auburn St.
