Synopsis

WITS - Walter Stillman Elementary School in Tenafly has a unique after school club called WITS (World Improvement by Tenafly Students). Students from third to fifth grade take social activism to a new level. The club’s philosophy is to go beyond the bake sale. They do raise money for organizations, but they also research the issues, educate the public, take action and influence legislation. Issues they have focused on include global warming, landmine removal, peace action, fair trade and hunger.
