Marc's Memorial Bench
Organized by: Stephen Morgan
As some of you know, the 7th and 8th graders from Odyssey had been planning to travel to Leadville to present their final science project on Monday, June 1st. We were scheduled to work with 5th graders from the Expeditionary Learning school there. On the Friday before the trip, Marc Lizardo, a 5th grader at that school in Leadville, was killed in a house fire. We obviously cancelled our trip, and our students asked what they might do to support Marc's family and community. We spoke with teachers and administrators from the school and they would appreciate our help raising money to purchase a memorial bench to be placed on the school playground. This site was created to help organize the Odyssey community in raising funds for Marc's bench.
