Claire Spitz ‘20: As the leaves start to fall, and the temperature dips, Romeo delves into the thick of fall. With this new season comes a new chance for Romeo High School students to give back in a unique way.
UNICEF, an organization dedicated to helping children receive life saving vaccines, returns to Romeo High School with their orange cardboard donation boxes. Located in each classroom, these boxes remain open for donation. Fourth-hour classes compete for a chance to win a fan favorite prize – a donut and cider party.
Getting excited about this chance to raise money for a good cause, Mrs. Borlinghaus puts her game face on.
“I have a goal-ometer all set up to track the money my classes make and am encouraging others to participate as well! We talk about it every day before class starts,” Borlinghaus said.
Make sure to keep an eye out for these cardboard boxes, and bring your extra change to school!
