The Service Learning Club at La Jolla Elementary School raised $728 to benefit the Rwandan Orphans Project by selling adorable handmade Valentine's Day cards to the school community.
Under the leadership and direction of LJES parents April Winograd and Divya Reddy, students designed and sold cards to their classmates.
Elizabeth Allen Atelier, Copy Cove of La Jolla and Burns Drugs also helped this project by donating supplies and copy services.
We are proud of our school community for setting an example in volunteerism.
The Service Learning Club is part of the PTO, The Parent Teacher Organization at La Jolla Elementary. The group provides students and families with hands on volunteer and community service opportunities for the LJES population each month.
