Second graders at Northstar Elementary recently helped raise more than $350 for the United Nations Children’s Fund. Second grade teacher Shawn Helle says that the children recently watched a video about how many children around the world do not have access to things such as clean drinking water, healthy supplies of food, or opportunities to attend school. Helle says that they then went around with orange boxes during Beggar’s Night, helping collect funds as they went trick or treating. The second grade teachers and students would like to thank the Knoxville community for their generous support.
