This fall, Silas Wood students, under the direction of student teacher Ms. Lynn Fuschillo, formed a club to work on a community service project. They wanted to help other children in need and decided to work with a group called “Justin’s Hope Fund,” an organization that creates awareness and supports research for children diagnosed with brain tumors. They called it Kids Klub, KMAD (Kids Making a Difference). 

The students worked together to create 500 rainbow loom bracelets for patients in pediatric wards. “This project builds character, encourages empathy, and supports integrity,” said Ms. Fuschillo. “Kids Klub also fosters team building and problem solving. The students put thought into action and created a bond of lasting friendship with 500 critically ill children across the area.”

Kudos to these compassionate Silas Wood students and to Ms. Fuschillo as well.
