North Ridge Elementary School

North Ridge 3rd grader, Matthew Rushing, featured on local news

3rd Grader Matthew Rushing wanted to do something nice for the First Responders and essential workers. So he wrote a poetry book in their honor and as a result raised $400. He used the money to buy hospital workers some snacks because "they are too busy to eat." Two Los Angeles television stations, Channel 7 and 4, heard about him and featured Matthew and his book on their evening news broadcasts. This video features those two segments and Matthew's poetry book.
