Middle School Students Create "The WishTree Project!"

The middle school has started its very own "WishTree Project!" After students read the novel "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park, the class of 2026 grew concerned about the lack of clean water in South Sudan!

"Wishtree" by Katherine Applegate gave students the spark to create their own Wishtree- a tree that people can tie their wishes to. As a result, the class of 2026 came up with an idea to raise money for Water for South Sudan by transforming a tree into a Wishtree right outside their ELA classroom window!
Students have developed a fundraiser for South Sudan for the community to participate in, by donating a dollar for a wish to put on a Wishtree. Learn more about The WishTree Project by watching the video below.🌲
