Md. students raise money for Haiti
Seventh-graders at Severna Park Middle School celebrated raising more than $12,000 for relief efforts in Haiti — the most of any school in the Maryland Kids Care Campaign: Operation Haiti, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The students donated the money to the American Red Cross.
Anne Arundel school Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell told the students, who waved tiny Haitian flags at points during an hour-long assembly in their school gymnasium, that their efforts reflected the importance of not just achieving academically, but of being good people.
