Students Finley and Xavier Pearsall and Zachary Church raised more than $2,100 for St. Baldrick’s Foundation through its signature head-shaving event. Donations support research to help save kids with cancer.

“Thanks for encouraging my kids to be good folks,” parent Mary Scheidel wrote the district. “Their gutsiness and willingness to help is in large part because of how you all support and encourage them, every single day.”
