CLARK — On the day before school ended for winter break, students at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark participated in a fundraiser, organized by eighth grade language arts teacher Chris Taillefer, to support victims of Hurricane Sandy. The event was called Stop the Clock and students brought in as much pocket change as possible. At the beginning of every class, the students chose to give their change to the teacher and class couldn’t begin until the teacher counted all the change. While the teachers were counting, the students participated in a number of holiday activities. When the teacher finished counting the coins, they started their class. The class with the most change won a bagel party. Most classes at Kumpf joined in, and raised money for a good cause.
