Change Bandits during FLEX

Change Bandits

By, Alex Tinoco and Leslie Dutan


Mrs. Sciullo’s FLEX class chose students from different homerooms from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers to ask other students during lunch to donate money to the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. They gave up their recess to bring around a money jar for donations. We also encouraged them with a reward which was a free period of recess. Ms. Yepes homeroom was the winner! Our FLEX class lead the our team to raise $200.00 because we learned that “contributing to others” has been proven to positively affect our own well-being. This effort increased the amount the whole school has raised. Now we raised over $800 in total! We hope our event will help the school donate more money.
