WESTWOOD, N.J. -- An assembly for spirit day recently took place at an elementary school in Westwood.
Westwood Regional School District’s Jessie F. George School performed a Peer Pals skit highlighting the “Pillar of Character” during the March Spirit Day assembly.
The program emphasized that one caring act can make a big difference.
Afterward, Peer Pals challenged the students to bring in at least one canned good to show how one can could make a significant impact.
George School students brought in a total of 411 cans, which will be donated to the local food pantry.
Violet Waskielewicz’s third grade class brought in the most cans, with 64.
