On Monday, April 16 we began our fundraising efforts for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
We had our annual kick-off assembly during opening ceremony where we were heard information about St. Jude from Brian Carrol, representative from the Pekin to Peoria St. Jude Run. We then were blessed to hear the journey's of two St. Jude patients Val and Tori. Later, Mrs. Brown visited each classroom and spoke more about fundraising efforts for this amazing hospital.
By clicking on the link below, you are able to view the letter that was sent home with each child, describing how Altman students can help the patients of St. Jude.
