Western Avenue 5th Graders Raise Nearly $10K for the Kira Spedale Foundation
 
Yes, you heard that right. Last year's 5th Grade Class at Western Avenue school organized an event that raised $9,450 to fight brain cancer. Two young women, Abigail and Sarah Harrison, were best friends with eleven-year-old Kira Spedale before she passed away from DIPG, a rare form of brain stem cancer, last year. Abigail and Sarah were instrumental in convincing their class that Western Walks should benefit the “Kira Spedale Foundation,” a local organization founded in Kira’s name to combat DIPG through awareness and research. They were up against other worthy charities, but after Abigail and Sarah made their pitch, the rest of their class needed little convincing.

Western Walks is a great example of project-based learning (PBL), an approach that allows students to explore and take action on real-world issues. And as is the case with Western Walks, students are empowered to take control of their learning – they choose what charity they will support, conduct their own research, collaborate to plan event logistics, and explore ways to involve their community. This engaging, hands-on learning helps students develop a deeper knowledge of the issues they are studying and also teaches important skills such as collaboration and self-reliance.
