Super School Stars: 6th-graders at Racine Christian School

Racine Christian School 6th grade students Bradley Minger, Joshua Gee, James Ryback, Natalee Brzack, and Kellie Friesema display Haiti bake sale items for 5th grader Adrianna Westplate (on left).

Racine Christian School 6th grade students recently held a bake sale to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti.

By selling home-made treats to students and staff at the school, sixth-graders raised $350. The money was sent to Haiti via the Red Cross.

Principal Dave VanSwol says, “Thanks to teacher Mary Elliott for sponsoring this project. It’s an important part of Christian education to learn and care about people in other parts of our world, and to sacrifice of our time and money to help them in times of trouble.”

Super School Stars is a regular feature on RacinePost honoring local students, teachers and administrators in our schools. Have someone to nominate for a Super School Star Award? Contact us at: racinepost@gmail.com


  1. Way to go Racine Post!!! Recognizing children for the good works that they do, is very encouraging. It also inspires others to do good.

  2. Why Red Cross? Why not through the myriad of Christian organizations that are doing relief work in Haiti? That makes no sense.

    Good thing they didn't try this in a public school. What with homemade treats being banned and all. :)
