Grahamwood Elementary teachers regularly strive to impart a sense of social
responsibility and empathy for others into our students’ education experience. Recently, 5th
grade CLUE students and their CLUE teachers (Sherry Coates, Shannon McOlgan, and Laura
Wilons) just completed a study on Sustainability and Heifer International. As a culminating
activity for the study, students hosted a pajama day to raise money for Heifer International.
They raised over $1,600. This money will be used to provide farm animals, such as chickens and
goats, whose eggs and milk will offer sustainable sustenance to communities in need around
the world. “Many thanks to all who supported this effort!” states Ms. Coates.
