LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Elementary school Oso fundraiser story well done
Thank you for the wonderful article describing the rubber band bracelet fundraiser our second graders are doing for the Oso mudslide.
Reporter Celeste Erickson did a terrific job of taking statements from numerous students and creating a heartwarming story that told how this got started by two second grade students and has grown.
It captured the joy and pride these students feel.
The story inspired more students to join us in making/selling bracelets, and the publicity has brought in more money.
We have had to set a new goal, because we surpassed our goal of $300. Your story put a smile on a lot of faces, and it will enable us to help more people impacted by the Oso slide.
2nd grade teacher,
South Whidbey Elementary School
