Bayview PeaceJam Juniors Collect Food for Island Harvest thumbnail180015
Bayview Avenue students, faculty and staff recently hosted a food drive for Island Harvest. Organized by the PeaceJam Juniors group, the school collected 790 food items, or 700 pounds, for those in need.

Members of PeaceJam Juniors learned about the Dalai Lama and his mission toward peace and compassion, which inspired the group to organize the food drive. To help encourage participation, any student, faculty or staff member who brought in one or more food items received a star with their name on it which was then displayed on a bulletin board in the school’s main hallway.

As a result, the hallway was filled with stars and the food items collected will feed approximately 584 families in need this winter.

Ms. Laurie Trujillo’s second grade dual-language remote learning class at New Visions completed a lesson on Martin Luther King, Jr. in observance of the leader’s birthday. The lesson taught the students about Dr. King’s life and work. Each student then created a presentation utilizing Google Slides sharing their own dreams for a better world.

In addition, as an act of service honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.’s contributions and efforts to the world, students in the class and students in Ms. Denise Rodriguez’s in-school dual-language class together collected toys and other gifts for a needy family in the Freeport community.

“The students were able to connect the lessons of community service in a meaningful way that brought joy to all involved,” said Ms. Trujillo. The teachers delivered the gifts to the family before the MLK, Jr. Day on Jan. 18.
