Students and staff at Wellington Elementary School know the importance of helping others. Through the school’s “Dollar for Denim Days,” students and staff paid $1 to wear jeans.
The proceeds have benefited local charities. Wellington Elementary School donated $397 to the Autism Speaks Foundation in October and $386 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy victims in November.
Students also participated in the WPTV Food for Families Drive and collected 2,378 non-perishable goods for families in need.
The school has worked hard to instill those core character values, with kindness being a priority, and the students have shown true kindness through their participation in these worthwhile benefits.
