Students at Chesterbrook Academy Preschool in Chadds Ford recently donated more than $250 to World Wildlife Fund. Throughout February, classrooms competed in a “Pennies for Polar Bears” fundraiser and collected donations that were used to adopt a polar bear through the organization. The students’ efforts will help the World Wildlife Fund preserve the existence of the species. At the close of the competition, the classroom with the most donations was awarded a certificate of achievement and a pizza party. Through this initiative, students learned the importance of caring for animals and protecting the environment.

During this year's trip, honors students from throughout the State System will be based at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, and visit sites in Poland, Budapest and the Czech Republic. Students will take classes in "The European Jewish Experience: A Sociocultural Perspective," "The History of Architecture" and "Introduction to Central and EasternEurope."
