The newly formed Middle School Student Leadership Board (SLB) donated 289 items of food weighing over 200 pounds to the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry before Thanksgiving.
SLB promoted the food drive at the Middle School, collected donations over a two-week period and then sorted and delivered them before the holiday, says Rachel Katkar, a science teacher who co-facilitates the group with math teacher Lauren Kaell.
On Halloween, SLB hosted a bake sale and raised over $200 for NOVA, a charity designed to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti. The group next plans to identify and creatively solve small and large issues facing the Middle School. SLB, composed of 19 students in grades 5-8, meets weekly on Fridays from 11:55 AM to 12:15 PM.
The members are: Eleanor Dundas, Mitchell Fink, Kendall Halprin, Charlotte Hazen, Lauren Marlowe, Grace Rabley, Hanna Schiciano, Kwynne Schlossman, Danny Batista, Annie Fabian, AJ Halpern, Brenna Hazen, Leonardo Heath, Natalie Heath, Oliver Peterson, Gharvin Ramnarase, Sibora Sadrijaj, Logan Schiciano, and Nathaniel Attwell.
