"Dimes for Disasters" Print E-mail

By Brook Browning

Almost every year some kind of major disaster happens and a lot of the time a middle school student is involved. No student should go through this kind of misery, would you agree? The sixth grade language arts students at Phillip A. Sharp Middle School have decided to do something about it. We have created a project called "Dimes for Disasters."

"Dimes for Disasters" was created for future disasters that may involve middle school students here at Phillip Sharp. Students are asked to bring in dimes to put in a jar. When enough dimes are brought in, the money will be put in an account for future disasters. If you would like to help, please send dimes in with your student.
