I never get tired of stories about youngsters looking beyond their own lives and doing good for others. Here’s one such story from the campus of Fay School.

On January 9, eighth grade students at Fay School presented a check for $862 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The students, who are members of art teacher Billy Claire’s and English teacher Deb Smith’s advisory groups, sold “candy cane grams” (for $1 each) to Fay students, faculty, and staff in December. Dan Plante, a “wish-granting volunteer” from Oxford, MA, accepted the check on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Over nine years, Mr. Claire’s and Ms. Smith’s advisory groups have raised a total of $7,212 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Fay School is an independent, co-ed school for grades PreK-9, with boarding for grades 7-9, located in Southborough, MA.
