3-2-13 005[1]After the snow, Academy Middle School students were thinking of summer, warm beaches and ocean fun! Middle School students took part in a Lenten fundraiser on Thursday, Feb. 28 for the benefit of Hurricane Sandy victims. For a minimum donation of $2, students in Fifth through Eighth Classes were out of uniform, played volleyball during PE and international language classes, and enjoyed some flavor ice at lunch. The volleyball teams were organized by spirit teams—the Red team raised the most money while the White team won the most games.

The day’s proceeds of $1,080 will benefit the “Sandy Ground Project: Where Angels Play.” Twenty-six parks will be built along the New Jersey, New York and Connecticut coasts that have been devastated. Each will be named in honor of one of the 26 children and adults who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
