Education Notebook: Salk students wear hats for Haiyan relief

Thu., Dec. 5, 2013, midnight

Students at Salk Middle School raised about $600 to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The fundraiser was organized by Salk’s Associated Student Body officers Kyle Cozza, Zoe Ruchti and Jake Wash. Students and staff donated $1 to wear a hat of their choice to school for a day. Donations continued for two days after their hat day.

The school donated the money to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in the Philippines.

The students learned how to think “globally with compassion and selflessness at the needs of others,” said teacher Debra Trujillo-Gilbert in an email.
