It's Time to Rebelutionize the World
In the fall, Parkwoodâ€™s Global Awareness class was challenged to go outside the box to help those in need. After much brainstorming, the Parkwood Rebelution developed. Once the project had a name and a motto, they needed a cause to support. The class decided to work with Samaritanâ€™s Purse to buy water filters for third world countries. The first semester class held class competitions to raise money and sold t-shirts. By the end of first semester, nearly $1,100 had been raised. Second semesterâ€™s Global Awareness class has plans to sell a new t-shirt design, bumper stickers, and hold a schoolwide competition. Each water filter cost $100 and will last a lifetime. To learn more about Rebelution or to donate to the cause, please contact Jennifer Bess, Global Awareness teacher.
