Waverly Avenue Elementary School’s generosity and community spirit were on full display at its annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation event this year.
The school raised over $22,000 for St. Baldrick’s, an organization that raises money to fight childhood cancer.
Historically, Waverly has carried the torch for Sachem in this specific fundraising effort, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last decade. Other buildings across the district will hold St. Baldrick’s events throughout March.
This year’s honoree at Waverly, Kayla Sperro, was on hand as more than 45 students and staff had their heads shaved in front of a packed cafeteria. Sperro, 15, is a Sachem student who is batting osteosarcoma.
