The Elementary STUCO is active in promoting several student enrichment activities such as the spring and fall on-campus camp outs, game night, movie night, Roald Dahl Day, a Trick-or-Treating event and dances. This year the Elementary STUCO joined the Secondary STUCO to organize the first-ever all-school Spirit Week. Students from preschool through grade 12 dressed up for Pajama Day, Crazy Day, Scary Day, Twin Day and Color Day.
Money raised from these events goes toward STUCO’s community outreach program to support an orphanage/boarding school in the Tashkent area. In the past, STUCO funds have helped buy more than 200 indoor slippers for children at this facility. STUCO has also successfully sponsored several clothing and toy drives to benefit the 300-plus children.
