Natomas Cares: Students Build House Over Spring Break


THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

Five Natomas High School students spent this spring break building a home for a family in need in Baja, California.

Natomas High sophomore Amir El-Badry, juniors Marissa Rosales and Aryana Harris, and seniors Raushaan Anwar and Zach Watts, were in Baja March 24-30.

The Natomas High students worked alongside other students from the Sacramento-area high schools building a wood home from scratch. After their 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily work shifts were over, students took a break from building by visiting nearby beaches and going on hikes.

“It was a great experience because it made me closer to a lot of people that I wouldn’t have thought I would ever talk to,” said 16-year-old Junior Aryana Harris. “It also made me very thankful for what I have here.”

Student Reach International organized the trip which is meant to expand the worldview of students and help show students how they can be a part of something bigger than themselves.

“Building homes in Baja, California shows that we care about our community and the greater community,” said Natomas High Vice Principal Matthew Huddleston. “It also shows that we are taking responsibility for the greater good out there.”
