OC’s Hair Police is thrilled to announce that May’s recipient goes to “STAY-Students Thinking About Youth” out of Newport Heights Elementary(NHES). STAY consists of a group of 6th grade students that are working together to raise money to give back to their school as their tenure ends on the Elementary level.
STAY’s goal this year is to contribute items that make a lasting impression by beautifying NHES or improving upon their student experience. Two considerations are EZ-Up’s to provide shelter for the Special Needs students during outside assemblies or a mural in the MPR (Multi-Purpose Room) emphasizing “Every Child, Everyday, Education for Success.”
STAY’s primary fundraising is via a monthly cookie and lemonade stand. They have also done a Used Book Fair and are planning a Fun Activity Raffle. Member Delaney Knipp stated, “I am always excited for the first Friday of every month because that is when we do STAY. It is so much fun hanging out with my friends and selling lemonade and cookies to kids.”
The STAY members agree that NHES has been such a great experience and given them so much, they want to give back so that younger kids can have an even better experience. STAY members pictured from left to right are: Riley Dun, John Passnnante, Delaney Knipp, Mia Matsunami, Annabella Peca, Berniece Padilla, Claire Hefner, Zoe Gleason, Avalon Miracle, Jasmine Ishihama, and Sophia DePacol.

STAY was established at NHES during the 2009/2010 school year. OC’s Hair Police is “IN IT TO WIN IT” with STAY and applauds their efforts of a job well done!!!
