The VHS Student Council is conducting a drive to support the students of the Robert L. Craig School (grades K-8) in Moonachie, NJ. The

The Robert L. Craig School will be closed for approximately a month because of the structural damage caused by the winds and major flooding of Hurricane Sandy. In order to get students back in the classroom, Robert L. Craig students will be temporarily placed in other schools in Wood-Ridge while their school is repaired. However, these students and their teachers are in desperate need of classroom supplies, as everything has been lost due to Hurricane Sandy. In addition to being temporarily placed in another school building, many of the students in this community have been flooded out of their homes and are currently living in shelters.

A Hurricane Relief Drive for the Robert L. Craig School Drive will take place this weekend in Moonachie and the VHS Student Council is trying to make a contribution to this relief effort. It is asking for school supplies and either cash or gift card donations by Friday, November 9, which can be brought to school. The Verona Fifth Downers, the football parents’ association, will also be accepting donations at this Saturday’s home football game on behalf of the Robert L. Craig School.

The Student Council is looking into other fundraising to help other students affected by Hurricane Sandy, and said this in its e-mail: “The Verona community has always been supportive, caring, and giving, particularly in difficult times. We know that many of you are still trying to sort through the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, and are therefore that much more appreciative of any contribution you are able to make at this time. The Verona High School Student Council thanks you for any contribution you are able to make on our behalf to the Robert L. Craig School in Moonachie, NJ.”
