WOW LOOK AT WHAT THIS SCHOOL DID FOR PANDAS!

Posted by Pesto and Violet at 3:06 PM


WOW! CHECK OUT WHAT THIS SUPER COOL SCHOOL DID TO HELP PANDAS!

Students and staff members at Sky Vista Middle School have raised more than $1,200 in pennies for the Pennies 4 Pandas program, which benefits the endangered giant panda. The money will be used to replant bamboo forests in China which were destroyed by the May 2008 earthquake. Bamboo is the giant panda’s primary food source.

Sixth-grader Dylan Hobson brought in 7,000 pennies by himself!

“It made me feel really good because I knew I was making a difference in the world,” said Hobson. “It took a while though. I had two backpacks full of pennies and they were so heavy!”

Eighth-grader Kiana Mun-Williams said she learned that giant pandas are an important part of the earth’s ecosystem and was glad to help them.

“Pandas are adorable and we don’t need anymore extinct animals,” Mun-Williams said. “We worked as a team and had fun.”

Students, teachers or organizations who would like information or want to participate in Pennies 4 Pandas can go to www.pennies4pandas.org or call (303) 933-2365. General information about the history, mission and programs of Pandas International can be found at www.pandasinternational.org
