Our PreK/K students participated in the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon on Friday, March 27, at 10:00am on the Upper Side Bus Loading Area. This year our PreK/K students raised $1549 for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. That will provide chemo for one child for one day. It takes $1.9 million a day to run the hospital. Thank you to everyone that participated.
