Free Rice Marathon

First of all, thanks to all of you who told me how much rice you donated on your own yesterday. At school, we had students down in the computer lab all day in 15-minute shifts. There were 37 computers going full steam all day. We raised just over 750,000 grains of rice for We had a great time and we thank everyone who participated. There was almost 50,000 donated by people not at our school. All in all, it was a lot of fun.


    Good job Jethro and good job to your class on organizing it. That's an awesome number.

    Sounds like a great service learning project. I'd like my kids to do some kind of service learning at the end of the school year, but I have to do a little more research to give them some direction. I haven't had time to check out your wiki yet, but I'm excited to see it.
