Spul’u’kwuks students raise money for Sandy Hook
Spul’u’kwuks elementary Grade 4 student Taylor Markel rallied her fellow students and school teachers and staff to participate in a bake sale fundraiser for the students of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, the scene of a tragic shooting that claimed the lives of 20 students and six teachers late last year.
Touched by the senseless tragedy, Markel sought to raise funds to send to the students to be used to bring some much-needed laughter and joy back into the school, perhaps for a magician entertainer. Said teacher Renata Hyrman: “Such is our community that it teaches our children to enjoy their childhoods and share their good fortune with those that have lost theirs.”
