Evran, in Mrs. Brill’s 3rd grade class, rallied the help of his schoolmates, teachers, and community to raise money for Turkey. On October 23, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey, causing many casualties and several buildings to collapse. At least 240 people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured. Evran’s family is from Turkey and he knew that the Oakton school community would come together to help this cause.
Students and staff each paid $1.00 to wear a hat on Friday. All the money collected will be donated to the relief efforts. -cg
