Students and teachers participated in read-alouds, spirit week, a door decorating competition and a T-shirt design fundraiser. The winning design was created by fifth grader Jack Woods in Mr. Kolensky’s class. Funds from T-shirt sales were donated to a local organization, Spectrum of Dreams, that supports individuals with autism, and over $2,000 was raised for the organization.
