Our Middle School Students Really Stepped Up!

Bringing literacy to those in need isn’t just a cause that adults rally behind!  This year, our National Junior Honors Society members here at Bernotas Middle School stepped up for this extremely worthy cause as well.  Our members chose A to Z Literacy because of its ongoing mission to supply not just books, but continuing education for Zambia’s teachers, as well as funding a much needed lunch program.  As an organization we realize that these things that are so readily available to us, are a much needed resource for the teachers and students we hope to reach in Zambia.  Our membership organized a walk-a-thon fundraiser, collected pledges and walked for this valuable cause.  Through our efforts, we were proud to be able to donate over $3,000 to A to Z Literacy.  Our membership looks forward to the opportunity to do this again next school year!

  1. Jen, congratulations to you and the other staff members who worked so hard to make this happen! That’s a VERY generous donation! And please give my thanks to the wonderful students who did all the “leg work.”
