Giraffeclub1 381x337, Academy at the LakesThe Giraffe Club members were ready to “stick their necks out” when former Academy teacher, MaryAnn Habershaw told them of her need to help her students with some presents.

Mrs. Habershaw, who last year purchased Solid Step Learning Center, a Head Start Facility, works with students from needy homes.

The Academy Giraffe Club went to Toys-R-Us to and purchased 30 toys for Ms. MaryAnn’s school. The students had a budget and looked for items on sale. “It is a great learning experience for our students,” commented Mrs. Szarko-co-advisor to the Giraffe Club. “Mrs. Rodgiguez and I are proud of the genuine caring our students have for others.”
