Boone began a new initiative in the 2014-2015 school year to develop philanthropy in our students. Thorough a program called a Legacy of Giving, our 5th grade students engaged in two different projects across the year to support those not as fortunate in our community.
The first school wide project in the fall was a canned food and coat drive. Students then took the food and coats to the Capital Area Food Bank for a large donation day.
Our second project in the spring had students creating public service announcements about healthy living and healthy eating. With the support of Channel Austin, students learned how to create a PSA video. The school voted on the top PSA to send to the district wide contest. See the link for the video below.
