“Animal Shelter Donation Drive”

Eastplain scholars collected used and/or new items to donate to a local animal shelter. Student council members created posters and flyers to share with Eastplain students and families. Students brought in used/new blankets, sheets, dog beds, treats, etc. Student council members sorted the items and donated them to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. A total of 179 items were donated.

“Coin War”

Grades competed to see which grade could bring in the most amount of coins, with the winning grade receiving a pizza party donated by a local pizzeria. $1,652.37 was raised for Rocco’s Voice for Autism, a local charity. We were pleased with the amount donated by our small school.
