Teachers and staff at Perkins Elementary School dressed according to a holiday theme on Fridays throughout December 2017, and paid $1 each for the right to do so.
The program raised $110 for the local Blessings in a Backpack program that provides food bags to eligible students at Kelley, Perkins and Lincoln schools on Friday afternoons to ensure they won’t go hungry during the weekend.
The Perkins School Social Committee organized the fundraiser.
“Thanks so much to everyone who participated,” said Liz Weiermiller, instructional coach. “What an awesome and fun way to give back to our students this holiday season.”
