The middle school’s Leaders Club recently held its annual UNICEF Homeroom Bagel Breakfast fundraising contest, raising $830. The winning class was awarded a bagel breakfast prize. UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfill their potential from early childhood through adolescence.

At the friendly competition’s beginning, UNICEF boxes were distributed to students, who were encouraged to bring in spare change. Throughout the two weeks of the contest, students brought back their full boxes and club members weighed, recorded and tallied each homeroom’s coinage. The homeroom with the greatest weight at the end of the two-week period won the completion and breakfast. 

“This year, Mrs. Avella’s period 1A class won with a whopping 24 pounds, beating out the second-place class by 8 pounds,” said adviser Laura O’Donnell.
