  • Stepping out of the Storm

    PowerUp Puerto Rico! is now paying off for the students and teachers forced to restart after Hurricane Maria.  An elementary school in San Juan, Puerto Rico recently installed new air conditioning units.  Another elementary school in nearby Guaynabo is soon to build a new playground. Both improvements are the big imprints of Birchwood’s helping feet.

    Six months ago, Birchwood students together took over half a million steps in their gym classes and raised $4,218.68 for Puerto Rican schools.  The effort was muy grande, with 166 students participating.  The average steps per student in a single gym period (as counted by pedometers) was 3,173. The giving of families was muy generoso, eventually tallying to $4,218.68.  Que magnifico!
