Nearly 100 Red Mill Elementary School students participated in the Read for Ronald McDonald House Program this winter, raising $6,018 for the charity. This donation will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Albany, which provides a free place for families to stay while their critically ill child receives treatment from local hospitals.
The top student fundraisers were Teagan LaPlante, Madeline TenEyck, Graeme and Emmet McCarthy, Camden and Duffy Cartwright, Keaton McGivney, Michael Marchiony, and Connell Boomer. They each won prizes, got to have a silly string event with their teachers and pied school librarian Liz Griffin!
As part of the program’s festivities, their principal also came to school dressed as their favorite book character Harry Potter.
Thank you to everyone who supported this worthy cause!
