Picking Up The Pieces!

Hi everyone! This is Callie Addleman & Sydney James asking for you to join us in helping out some superstars that we really love! During winter break, our teacher's classroom was vandalized. This is a classroom that is used by two teachers, meaning that like 60 students call this their homeroom! Nearly everything in this classroom from the APPLE COMPUTER to the copy paper and markers were destroyed with water, paint, and other damaging stuff. We would include pictures of what the damage was, but they're not even appropriate for this page because the bad guys did awful things to the room that you wouldn't want to see! Our teachers, Ms. Lacey Peckham and Ms. Leslie Oney taught us in 4th and 5th grade in Steven G. Schorr Elementary School, where I met Sydney and our friend, Macaiah, who is also in the picture and you'll meet her in our video (please watch that, too). We've moved up to Silvestri Junior High now, but these two teachers really made a big difference in our lives and we want to help to make a difference in theirs. They can't teach without the right tools and their students deserve to have all of the awesome stuff that we had. We're busy being 6th graders now, but we're working hard to raise money for them to get things that they need. Sydney is babysitting and selling lollipops, and I'm (Callie) making and selling hair bows and headbands. ALL of the money that we make is also going towards the 'Picking up the Pieces' fund. If you've taken the time to read this, thank you! Not all kids have teachers in their lives that really make a difference like Ms. Peckham & Ms. Oney. Thanks again for helping them. Love, Callie and Sydney

We reached our goal! We reached our goal! Ms. Peckham & Ms. Oney, we wanted this for you because you deserve nice things back in your classroom.

I know that the computers and the smart boards will be replaced by the school, but the other little things that make the classroom feel awesome and help make learning fun are really important. I don't know a lot about insurance and stuff, but my mom said that the school is taking care of you. We will be bringing you the first donation check on Friday, the 17th, but we will keep this site open for more donors since you need more stuff in your classroom still like beanbags and things like that.

We hope that this fundraiser and ALLLLLLL of the people (some of them are strangers) that have donated really will help you to Pick Up The Pieces. Yesterday, in English class, Sydney and I were called to the front of the whole class (not where I'm most comfortable) and our teacher, Mrs. Faris had seen us on the news on Friday. She was surprised to see her students and she was proud of us that we were standing up for what we believed in. I think it's really cool to see that people donate to repair stuff and don't think about what the bad guys did.

We can't change what happened, but we can be excited about the future, we can smile, and we can say, "KINDNESS ALWAYS WINS."

If you're reading this, thank you. That means that you're either Ms. Oney or Ms. Peckham, you're someone that loves them, or someone that loves us... Maybe you're a stranger, but not for long!

Love, Callie

Hi Everyone!
We had a super cool day today and we're having a sleepover to watch all of the news stories tonight. How many other kids are spending their Friday night watching the news???????

Before we say anything else, we want to take a second to thank everyone who has donated this week to our teachers. We have learned this week that KINDNESS ALWAYS WINS!

We had soooooo much fun with news interviews today and got to tell them about how to help Ms. Peckham and Ms. Oney. We don't know how else to say it, but it's super cool. Here are the links to the news stories and the videos:

We found out that it was okay to show some of the pictures of the stuff that the bad guys did. She said that the pictures don't do it justice. It makes my heart hurt to see what they did! Ms. Oney said that so much of the classroom items had to be thrown away because the bad guys sprayed it in that fire extinguisher stuff and now it needs to be replaced so those students can get back to work. A lot of the student's personal property was destroyed and we weren't thinking of how much it might cost to replace pencil boxes binders and notebooks for 60 kids too. Here's a list of the small supplies that Ms. Oney sent us that they'll need for the classroom because a lot of people have asked what they can deliver to the school if they're there:

Markers
Colored Pencils
Composition Notebooks
Folders
Plastic Bins
Marble Jar
Treasure Box (with rewards)
Floor Pillows/ Bean Bags
Colored Paper

We want to give a shout out to Mr. Darnell Cardines for helping us reach our SECOND GOAL of $1200.00. Thank you, Mr. Cardines. Like I said before, when you cross a finish line, you don't just stop there, you have to run through the finish line. We got to see Ms. Peckham & Ms. Oney today when we took them some goodies to cheer them up. I posted the picture of Me, Syd and Macaiah with them. Ms. Oney cried! On her birthday, too. Thank you again. I feel like I say that a lot. I don't know what other words to use to say how cool it is that everyone is helping our teachers. My aunt said that if you're not gonna dream big, then why dream at all, so we're dreaming big and believing that we can meet the next goal!

Girls I am so VERY Proud of you. When I heard of your effort I got chocked up. To think former students of the school thought so much about their teachers and the school that they would do this is one of the most amazing tributes I have ever experienced to our educational system. You are a tribute to your families, your school and most importantly yourself. You are all great examples of the good things about today's educational system. You have learned invaluable lessons of Life. Take care of those who take care of you and these teachers, who you now stand for, took care of you and taught you. I am Proud of everything the three of you stand for....excellence. Thank you for being amazing graduates of Steve Schorr Elementary School.

Make sure you vote too... **Please take a minute to VOTE and HELP "2" of our amazing teachers at Steven G. Schorr Elementary School.** Channel 3 has partnered with Barrick Gold to offer a new recognition program for CCSD Teachers called "One Classroom at a Time". They are now accepting nominations for the month of January. One deserving teacher will be selected to receive $1,000 to use in their classroom. Leslie Oney, a 5th grade teacher and Lacey Peckham, a 4th grade teacher returned to school after the 2 week winter break to find their classrooms (which are outside portables) completely ransacked and vandalized. The vandals sprayed the fire extinguisher, spread paint, soda, and water everywhere, damaged their computers and expensive equipment, and pretty much destroyed their entire classroom. Will you please take the time to VOTE for these teachers? Every little bit will HELP get them back on their feet and back in their classrooms teaching. Since there are "2 Teachers" that had classrooms vandalized, let's submit both of their names. JANUARY: Vote for Leslie Oney (5th Grade Teacher) FEBRUARY: Vote for Lacey Peckham (4th Grade Teacher) Please start your votes now, we could use your support!!!! Even if one teacher wins, I'm sure they would split the money to help put their classrooms back together. Help us spread the word to vote. THANK YOU!!!!!!! http://www.mynews3.com/content/community/OCAAT/default.aspx
