BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Bossier City's Apollo Elementary School is participating in a month-long project to help pay for a class trip for New Jersey elementary school students affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Apollo's "Hearts for Highlands Elementary, New Jersey" effort runs through Feb. 28. The Student Council, 4-H and Robotics clubs are sponsoring the project.
Apollo Principal Julie Dupree says Highlands Principal William Ciullo suggested helping his 6th grade students go on their traditional trip to Washington, D.C. He says Sandy's damage left the school and most parents unable to cover the trip's $7,000 cost, $400 per child.
Donations can be made by mailing in a check, made payable to the school, to 2400 Viking Drive, Bossier City, La., 71111, or by dropping it off there.
