Throughout our school year we often took time to read news articles about events around the world. Last school year we were saddened to read and learn about the Australian bushfires and the vast devastation on forests, animals and human homes.

While we were following the Australian bushfires we learned about a little boy named Owen who was devastated over the bushfires and wanted to help. He started out with a goal of raising $1000. Well, he ended up raising $296,960. You can read his story here:

We were so inspired by Owen’s story, that we donated towards his cause.

Please stop by our classroom this fall to see our little koala displayed on our window planters.

I miss you second graders!
