Following a unit on water scarcity in other countries, third-graders at Jackson Avenue participated in a Walk for Water. For the second consecutive year, students were asked to bring in a gallon bottle of water, which they carried during the walk to represent the long distances those in other countries have to make in order to get fresh water. The 200 bottles of water were then donated to Island Harvest, which will utilize the water to benefit communities on Long Island.
