Rochester STEM Academy Seniors Fight Leukemia and Homelessness
Y-105FM and Foresight Bank are proud to celebrate a Cool Classroom that performed hands-on service for people often forgotten or ignored.
First, the nomination...
Cool Classroom Entry Entry # 2941
School Name: Rochester STEM Academy
School Town: Rochester
Why is this classroom the coolest?
This classroom is the coolest because they eagerly show their love for the community. In the previous weeks, this classroom created care packages for the homeless, and they personally delivered these care packages to the Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Rochester, MN.
Also, this classroom started a fundraiser which raised over $750 dollars for Leukemia patients and research.
These students are amazing!
The award comes with $50 from Foresight Bank, and their now in the running for $500 to use in their school if they're named the Cool Classroom of the Year!
