The Long Beach Public Schools’ LARC program raised $1,180 for the United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau for the CP Nassau Trivia Challenge Fundraiser. The fourth grade LARC curriculum includes a service learning component in which students use their talents to help those in need. For this project, the students participated in a trip to CP Nassau, where the principal of CP Nassau’s Children’s Learning Center and other officials explained why children and adults with CP require extensive funds for devices to assist with their mobility and communication.
The LARC students toured the facility and school, observing how teachers of children with CP adapt instruction to their learners. After the visit, the fourth graders took a 100-question trivia challenge in teams. The highest scoring team, comprised of Jack Biancamano, Ty Korolczuk, Shayna Tozer and Madelyn Weiner, answered an impressive 84 questions correctly. The group members went on to represent the LARC program at the Trivia Challenge finals on February 24, where they faced off against teams from all over Long Island.
The LARC students reached out to family, friends, and other community members to raise $1,180 for CP Nassau!
