Fifth-grade students at Park Avenue completed their unit on human rights with a human rights project of their own.

Inspired by the belief that every person is entitled to certain fundamental rights, students in Denise Graham’s class collected gently used coats, hats, scarves, gloves and mittens to donate to needy families during the holiday season.

The class goal was to provide winter clothing to 100 families in need through Long Island Teen Challenge, a local organization that promotes outreach programs, residential care and vocational training for those in need of assistance.
