After a half day of classes in the morning of October 14th, 2019, Four Winds School hosted our first ever Walk-a-thon fundraising event from 1:30 to 5:30pm. This event was a student-initiated fundraiser to help benefit Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, who are the descendants of the first Native Americans that the Pilgrims interacted with upon their arrival in the 1620s, and were our topic of study in humanities class the previous year.
Through the their fundraising efforts, students were able to raise $2800 to donate to the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe! Additionally, Four Winds students caught the attention of reporters from The Mashpee Enterprise, who conducted an extensive interview with one of our students, as well as The Greenfield Recorder.
