December 13, 2009

HAGERSTOWN -- Students at Hagerstown Children's School recently collected school materials to donate to the education system of Ghana, West Africa.

Students at the school on South Potomac Street in Hagerstown collected more than 1,000 items, including pencils, crayons, paper, glue sticks and various art supplies, according to an e-mailed news release.

They also took in spare change to pay for the shipment of the materials, according to the release from the private preschool and kindergarten, which serves students ages 2 to 5.

The school recently partnered with Erin Ruff, a senior at the University of Colorado who is studying abroad in Ghana. As part of her internship, Ruff is providing basic lessons to a group of children in the village of Kissama.
