In the spirit of embracing Gratitude and Kindness this month, the HSA
is launching a new fundraiser, RAISE CRAZE. Students will
fundraise to do Acts of Kindness throughout their homes and
communities. This fundraiser will run for 3 weeks and conclude on
Monday, 12/4. We hope this infuses the entire month with the spirit
of thankfulness and goodwill, while students engage in acts of
kindness to support our school enrichment programs and Cresskill
Cares! There are also exciting incentives to encourage
participation: the class with the highest donations will receive a
Pizza Party as a reward AND if the whole school reached their
goal... a school-wide ice cream party!!!
