A friendly competition took place between the classes and Mrs. Hathaway’s second grade class won with over 22,000 points. In second place was Mrs. Rodenhauser’s first grade class with 15,000 points.

On Friday, Mrs. Hathaway’s class enjoyed a pizza party, complete with ice cream, hosted by Joyful Connections to celebrate the children’s success. The children learned about helping others and worked really hard to collect to money to support the children using the services of Joyful Connections.

Joyful Connections is a local non-profit dependent on donations and fundraising to provide services.  Joyful Connections provides opportunities for children in out of home placements to stay connected with their parents and family members.
