Classroom Halloween Celebrations


1st Annual "Rock the Walk" Walkathon was a huge success. The weather couldn't have been better. The students were very excited to be outside walking and listening to DJ James. A special appearance by Mr. Jack London from Meridian Bank, a major sponsor, spoke to the students on the importance of health, exercise, and being your best self. Mr. London is a former Mr. Universe bodybuilder who got the students up and exercising during his talk. 
A big thanks to Amanda Battinieri, Beth Dixon, Lara Ciesinski, and Carolina DiGiorgio for organizing this FUNdraiser. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to help the walkathon run smoothly. To date, we have raised over $25,000 for the school. Thank you for your support and generosity.
A Huge Thank You to Our Gold Sponsor for their Generous Support
