Beethoven/Ohrenberger Schools raise more than $1,600 for Sandy victims

 An excerpt from the boston.com article by Mary Ellen Gambon, Globe Correspondent

“There’s a motto at the Beethoven/Ohrenberger Schools’ K-8 program that the students and staff take seriously: ‘Work hard, show respect, and be responsible.’

This month, several students took it upon themselves to ask the principal if they could raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims and earn a ‘dress-down day’ in return. In the past, students at the two schools, partnered in a K-8 program, have raised money for earthquake victims in Haiti and tsunami survivors in Japan and earned a day off from wearing uniforms for their efforts. Now, they wanted to do the same for storm victims closer to home.”
