  • Robins Nest campaign

    March 21st - April 5th is the Change for Children Campaign 2023 fundraiser, which supports Robin’s Nest Children’s Advocacy Center, a non-profit agency that helps local children and youth, ages 0 to 18, who have been abused. Since its opening in 2011, more than 1,750 victims of serious child abuse have been served.
    Students are being asked to donate their change for Robin’s Nest and classroom teachers will collect until April 5th.
    The classroom with the most change collected from each school wins a Krispy Kreme Donut Party. For the elementary, middle school, and the classroom with the most raised per capita in the school district, they will win a Bo’s Party.
