The Herricks Middle School staff organized a volleyball fundraiser for the students, parents, and teachers to raise money for Project REACH. Reclaiming Every Affected Child’s Happiness is a program that evolved from the collective desire of the school community to make a difference in the lives of children in areas severely impacted by Super Storm Sandy and the school shooting in Newtown, CT.
The night started off with seventh grade girls playing against the seventh grade boys. The girls were successful in defeating their opponent two games to one.
The eighth grade boys were scheduled to play the girls; however, do to scheduling conflicts the boys were victorious on a default. At the conclusion of the night, the middle school parents took on the middle school staff.
The faculty won the first two matches and the parents defeated the teachers in the final match. The event raised $200.
