Our student council group, led by Ms. Burr and Ms. Trebour, started off January with collecting soup cans for “Souperbowl,” in which we collected over 350 cans of soup for the Huntington Food Pantry.

Throughout the last few months, our Countrywood community has participated in a number of Fundraisers and Collections to help those outside of our school. Students are learning that by participating in various outreach activities, that they are helping make someone else’s life better.  Our student council group, led by Ms. Burr and Ms. Trebour, started off January with collecting soup cans for “Souperbowl,” in which we collected over 350 cans of soup for the Huntington Food Pantry. 

Then in February, led by Ms. Kapps, we partnered with Island Harvest to collect food and supplies to lend a helping hand to those families of furloughed workers who have been affected by the government shutdown. Finally, Countrywood students joined the Pennies for Patients campaign to work together as a community to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and so far our CW families and friends have raised close to $6,000 and they are still going! Students learned that every hero needs a squad and every penny counts!
