Closing in on their $1,000 goal

Students from Verona schools recently raised almost $800 for Haitian earthquake relief and hope to reach $1,000 with the Help for Haiti Bookmark Project. The event was organized by Kathleen Wrobel (speech-langauge teacher), Debbie Marsano (Dream Team Club advisor) and Emily Podolak and Eugenie Mordkovich (French Club advisors). Students at the elementary schools colored and decorated bookmarks which were then laminated, cut and trimmed by the Dream Team and French Clubs at HBW. Students from the Lunch Bunch, a social skills group also helped. The bookmarks were then sold at HBW and VHS. Activities of the Dream team are funded by the Verona Municipal Alliance Committee.
