When Valle Crucis seventh-graders read Linda Sue Park’s “A Long Walk to Water” last September, they wanted to take what they’d learned from the book off the page.
So, along with their teacher Courtney McClellan-Brown, the students set to work on a project that would raise money for a nonprofit called Water for Sudan – an organization founded by the book’s main character, Salva Dut. The group works to provide clean water for the people of South Sudan.
