RHS Mass Media Students Participate in Annual Gratitude Projects


RHS Mass Media Students Participate in Annual Gratitude Projects 


Roxbury, NJ (January 6, 2017) – Roxbury High School’s Mass Media classes under the supervision and guidance of Mrs. Deborah Burleigh, the Mass Media teacher, created its’ annual campaign to share gratitude in Roxbury. 

“Students participate in the brainstorming process and select groups or individuals they feel deserve recognition. Then they work together to create an event to share their appreciation or make a special delivery,” explained Burleigh. 

This year students honored Miss Corliss, a VISTA teacher at Roxbury High School for adopting Ruby, a therapy dog in the VISTA program at the school by providing a gift card to Pet Smart, breakfast for the VISTA students and staff, and a promise to raise the additional $600 for her GoFundMe account for Ruby’s continued training and care. 

The other Mass Media Class launched a gratitude campaign to the local fire department thanking them for their service. Students provided a little gesture of appreciation with some cute snacks to say thank you. Containers were provided by Yummy Taste, Kenvil, NJ.
