Hello Walker High School, we have an interesting story for you today. Have you heard about freerice.com yet? If not you are missing out! Freerice.com is a fun way to raise food for the hungry and help feed your brain! Read the fine print though.
“WARNING: This game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking, grades, and job performance.”
Also if you haven’t heard about freerice.com, then I bet you haven’t heard about our school participation in it? Our school, for the past week or so, has participated in this charity event. So the media decided to gather up some information for those of you whom have not heard of this. We asked Ms. Dollar what made her want to start this freerice.com, and she told us “I was looking in my monthly edition of Glamour, and I saw this article on 31 ways to give back.” Ms. Dollar believes that freerice.com builds character and it is important as a teacher to teach not only curriculum, but character. Outstandingly, Ms. Thompson and Ms. Dollar’s classes held positions 22 and 24 out of 3,454 groups!
The students were absolutely amused with this site. They enjoyed playing this learning game. Coach Phillip’s class donated 42,450 grains of rice to the school, Ms. Thompson’s class donated 909,830, and Ms. Dollar’s 592,770.
While on the subject of donation, Logan Mickis (our top freerice.com player) donated over 190,000 grains of rice to Ms. Dollar’s class and 81,000 to Ms. Thompson’s class, and he wasn’t even in either class! He had heard about this site from a friend! He was amazingly generous, and helped keep our school in out top positions.
Our top students are:
- Logan Mickis 275,350
- Matt Meadows 222,220
- Lucas McCullar 65,540
- Calie Blankenship 35,240
- Destiny Beckman 27,000
- Tiandrea Brown 24,540
- Blake Guthrie 21,950
- Noah Estus 20,620
