Following the devastating events of Hurricane Katrina, many Bedell students began to ask parents and teachers at Bedell... How can we help? After some thought, the Bedell Parent Faculty Club started a “Spare Change Can Change a Life” drive, where students and their families could send in spare change. In just one week, the students of Bedell School raised $1,000 for the Hurricane Katrina victims. This was truly a school-wide effort. Due to scheduling conflicts a school wide photo could not be taken. Above, representatives from each classroom hold jars of coins that were collected. Below, is a photo of all the rolled coins that were counted by the Bedell Parent Group. The money was turned over to the American Red Cross.
