Kids in the News: Student raises money for animal shelter

Natalie Simons, a fifth-grader at César Chávez Elementary School, has made life a little bit brighter for some shelter animals in Sacramento.

Simons, 10, adopted her kitten, Pumpkin, from the Front Street Animal Shelter in April and wanted to do her part to give back to the shelter.

So in October, during the annual Halloween Treat Trail in downtown Davis, Simons held a bake sale in front of Watermelon Music. She had baked more than 60 cupcakes from scratch — caramel apple and pumpkin spice — and sold enough of them to raise $109 for the shelter.

She took the proceeds to the shelter in November and received a certificate of appreciation in return.

For the second year in a row, the Davis High School newspaper, The HUB, has won the highest award in high school journalism: the National Scholastic Press Association “Pacemaker” award.

The HUB was named one of 60 finalists in September and was named one of 30 winners last month at the national high school journalism convention in Boston.

Three students also placed fifth in the Design of the Year category for a front page that featured the article, “Ethnic and economic disparity on display.” Those students are Henry Anker, now a freshman at UCLA, and Daniel Tutt and Ben Baek, both now at UC Berkeley.
