The second-graders each brought in $1 -- that they had saved or earned -- to contribute to helping kids around the world. It was a culminating activity to the lessons the class has undertaken on building social-emotional skills and empathy.

"Students felt empowered as they discovered that they can make a positive change in the world," says Mrs. McGrath. The whole class was invited to wear red while sporting red noses on this day to show their support!
