Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School students showcased their creativity with their inventive baby scarecrows and raised $965 for the Rocky Point Teachers’ Association Kids in Need Fund.
Organized by fourth grade teacher Allison Licata, with participation from all fourth grade classes, each student constructed individual scarecrows complete with colorful decorations and embellishments. The finished works of art were then set out on display in the hall outside the classrooms. Students and staff were invited to visit the scarecrow patch and vote for their favorite one by donating coins.
The long-standing tradition at JAE has raised thousands of dollars for Kids in Need and has been taking place for more than two decades. It was first introduced by former teacher Sandy Finn Grunner.
