The highlight of this week was of course, the trike-a-thon! Despite the wind, the kids did great and loved every moment of it. It was very clear to see that many of the children took the time to practice riding their bikes before the event. Thank you families for helping out and showing your support! If you have not yet turned in your St. Jude donation envelope you have until Friday May 5th to get it in to the office. For our next blog post I will announce how much the school raised to donate back to St. Jude's Children's Foundation!
