In August the Expeditionary School at Black River and Ludlow Legion hosted a sold out chicken BBQ, raising just over $2,000 and selling out of over 120 chicken meals.
At that time, ESBR was still in the midst of the Vermont State Board of Education’s Approval Process. Although it was important for the school to continue a steadfast fundraising plan, after the July flood hit ESBR knew they needed to share the proceeds, so half the proceeds would be donated to the Black River Good Neighbor Services to assist their efforts in flood relief.
On Sept. 26, and as part of this year’s curriculum, students presented the $1,000 check to BRGNS.
A tremendous thank you to the Ludlow Legion and Black River Good Neighbor Services, and the Community as a whole. It is also inspiring to see the students interact with community groups, which is one of the main pillars of expeditionary learning. It is amazing to see it in action.
