IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Students at the Main Street School gathered for a Hike for Hunger on Friday, April 24, during which students donated change from their lunch and other small amounts for three hunger relief organizations at the local, national and global levels – the Food Bank for Westchester, No Kid Hungry and Stop Hunger Now.

“We are excited to take action to help people locally and around the world, as well as continue our efforts to be global citizens,” said Principal Joyce Chapnick.

In addition to donating change, some students purchased reusable water bottles that they used to stay hydrated during the hike. Other students helped make even more of a difference by picking up trash around the aqueduct during the hike and beautifying the area.

Main Street School students have participated in a number of activities this school year with the theme of global citizenship. Most recently, they sent Boodle Boxes to United States soldiers and Skyped with the recipients.

“What it means to be a global citizen ties in with our character education framework and our work with habits of mind,” said Chapnick.
