I have no voice but tonight was completely worth it. My teaching team coordinated a fundraiser at a local restaurant where 20% of the checks from tonight will go to our local Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education Center. I was at the restaurant from 4:45-8:30 and we had a huge turnout! We gave out 86 sign-in sheets to our students. Eighty-six! Plus we had former students, teachers from throughout the district, and administration.
It was a fantastic night spent with our students and parents. Like I said, I currently have no voice, but I think we raised a great deal of money to donate when we go to the museum on our class trip later this week. It was an amazing feeling seeing our students and their families eating dinner together and making time in their day for such a great cause. :)
