District News: Laudato voted to kiss a pig!

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 by The Press in School

Zephyr Elementary School’s Key Club, along with the school, raised money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during the Pennies for Patients campaign last month. The school raised more than $4,000!

One incentive to raise money was the promise that a staff member would have to kiss a pig. Students “voted” by placing money in a box identified for a particular staff member. Fifth-grade teacher Mrs. Laudato had the most votes.

Get ready to pucker up, Mrs. Laudato! The pig-kissing event will take place April 26.
