Each year, East Hills adopts a species. This year, we are adopting two . . . sharks and whales. Due to a spark ignited in Miss Smith's "Be the Change" class last year, Leah Daniels & Juhi Parekh (8th graders) continued their philanthropic passions into this school year. Their drive inspired the East Hills students and community to donate $1315.90 in a change war between the grades. Beyond adopting their chosen species, the additional money raised will be given to charitable organizations supporting both Great White Sharks and Orca Whales. Way to go!
