Some Good News

Socks sent to site crews

        Campbell County Schools have spent a month in fund raising and special projects to help out in disaster relief.

        At Grant's Lick Elementary, students held a sock drive, collecting over 1,000 pairs, and delivered them to the Salvation Army to be sent to rescue workers in New York and Washington, D.C.

        They also made sock puppets that were sent for the children of rescue workers.


        Students at Alexandria Elementary School collected $1,184.02 from students, friends and parents. They also operated lemonade stands. Money was sent to the Red Cross.


        Highland Heights students added a touch of patriotism to their efforts. They made armbands to be worn in support of the country. In one hour, they sold $600 worth of armbands in a parking lot and sent the money to the Red Cross.


        Students in an English resource class at Campbell County High School have written thank-you letters to firefighters and rescue workers in New York and have printed them on American flags.


        Fifth-graders at A.J. Jolly Elementary conducted a penny drive and collected $857.37 for the Red Cross and Salvation Army.


        Another penny drive was conducted at Campbell County Middle School among faculty, students and staff which generated $2,644.68.

        Sixth-graders collected $820.21, Seventh-graders collected $990.29 and eighth-graders collected $834.18.


        On the Ohio side of the river, McAuley High School in College Hill has collected $10,000, sent notes of care and concern, sold T-shirts and conducted a candlelit walk.


        St. Clement School in St. Bernard (222 students) collected $1,600 and wrote letters of support to the children in New York affected by the tragedy.


        Members of Indian Hill High School's National Honor Society recently voted to sponsor a project each month for the first time in its 46-year history.

        The society raised $3,134 in September for the Red Cross by decorating cans to collect from students and teachers at school, as well as parents and the public at sporting events.

        “It was their idea to get involved as a group with the community,” said Bibby Terry, English teacher and NHS advisr.

        The membership is made up of those inducted in 2000 as juniors. On Nov. 6, they will be joined by this year's juniors and seniors. “NHS inductees are selected confidentially by faculty members,” Mrs Terry said.
