Folding for a cause: Students pitch in for Japan effort

April 13, 2011
STURBRIDGE — Junior high students got whipped into a folding frenzy for a worthy cause this week.

According to Tantasqua Regional Junior High School art teacher Carol Willard, the school recently decided to join the recent effort to send aid to Japan as a way to support the victims of the earthquake and tsunami. Students in grades seven and eight took a 20-minute break from classes to construct the birds Tuesday, April 12. The disaster hit the country in early March, and students were eager to make as many of the paper creations as they could to help. Willard said each bird is worth $2, all of which will go toward the relief effort.

At right, seventh-grader Nastasha Kass-Evans, 13, shows off the tiniest paper cranes in the bunch.
