After our successful "Pucker Face Challenge" fundraiser, we invited Danny Bennett, co-chairman of Mattie's Mission, to stop by and talk to the staff about the various ways in which Mattie's Mission helps families in our area who are impacted by Childhood Cancer. The non-profit organization provides financial, emotional, and spiritual support to these families.
Before he left, Principal John Chancey and 4th grade teacher Lacey Gruver presented him with a check for $700 for Mattie's Mission. We are so proud of our students for making this happen. Every child that dropped a few coins into the jars can know that he or she helped a child in our community.
