Students Raise $1,500 for Nova Library

Nova students Aaron F. and Jackson C. initiated a fundraiser for the Nova Library for their Taekwondo Black Belt Project.  The fundraiser was a kick-a-thon in which participants were asked to collect pledges for the number of kicks they could perform in a two-hour period.  Six Nova students participated in the kick-a-thon:

Aaron F.  3, 728 kicks
Jackson C. 2,711 kicks
Danny D.  2,871 kicks
Sam S.  2,328 kicks
Danny R.  2,085 kicks
Rachel H.  1,862 kicks

Anjali V., Surabhi M., and Alex E. also collected donations for the kick-a-thon.  In all, $1,500 was raised.  These funds will be used to add to the collection of the Nova Library.  Thank you to all participants and to all members of the community who contributed!  Your generosity is much appreciated.

  1. Wow! This is super impressive!! I have to admit, I'm not only impressed, I'm jealous. I have my own library and would love a $1,500 check for books! These are amazing kids. I can't wait to see what they will do in the adult world someday. Thank goodness we have some capable leaders to look forward to.
