VALHALLA, N.Y. -- The student government at the Kensico School scheduled a "Jersey Day" on Wednesday to raise money for relief in Nepal.
During their Monday morning session on Monday, the 34 children decided that Wednesday will be a spirit day for all students to wear jerseys of their favorite sports teams or players. "These children are very good-natured students," said Kensico Principal Matt Curran. "They always want to help, and they're already learning. This school enjoys participating and helping others." On Wednesday, all students and staff are asked to bring $1 to participate in Jersey Day. The money will be donated to an organization providing relief in Nepal following the earthquake on April 25. The idea arose in student government last week since a Kensico fourth- grader is Nepalese and has relatives in Nepal. During the student government meeting, the children were asking questions, sharing thoughts and taking notes. Once the session was dismissed, the students returned to their classrooms and spread the word about Jersey Day to their classmates.
