In the Moraga School District, a commitment to service learning is a priority. Community service helps to build empathy and connectedness for our students - and hopefully a lifelong commitment to giving back and supporting a healthy community! As students came back to school after a tragic disaster in Maui, it was an obvious next step to mobilize into action. Under the fantastic direction of Clare Fallon, Camino Pablo fifth-grade teacher, the vision for Leis for Lahaina emerged. Ms. Fallon collaborated with her fellow leadership teachers throughout the district, Brett Lorie (JM), Jessica Labasco (LP), and Kelly Cavellero (Rheem) to develop a plan for leadership students to make leis in support of the victims of the Maui wildfire. The leis were made by students for students to purchase and wear on Sept. 1. All proceeds from the Leis will be donated to the American Red Cross. We are so proud of our Moraga students for supporting this effort and working so hard to ensure that Moraga can be part of the support for victims of this terrible tragedy.
