Northborough – Each year, it is a tradition for the Marion E. Zeh School's departing fifth grade students to raise money for a class adventure and a parting gift to the school. For this year's class gift, the students voted to instead donate $1,000 to the One Fund, the central fund established to help those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. During a farewell ceremony held at the school June 25, the students presented a check to Northborough Detective Jeffrey Noel that will be donated to the fund.
The students had also raised money to go attend a choral festival followed by a trip to Canobie Lake Park. The Northborough students were the youngest grade there as they competed against middle school choirs and placed gold, missing platinum by only four points.
