We had wonderful weather for our version of the A.B.C. Walk. The students had a great time and enjoyed their reward trinkets. They did all the work, so now all that is left is to collect the money for the Amherst non-profit agency!

I set a goal of $400, and we have collected $305 from 16 students. Wait, you say, didn’t more than 16 kids walk? You are right! We had 67 students walk (or run) a total of 1,760 laps. That equals 352 miles! My goal of $400 is only about $1 per mile.

Can I get a contribution, even a small one, so we can show that the Pelham School community cares about other students as well as our own? Donations will be accepted for the next 2 weeks. You may send checks, made out to ABC House, or cash in an envelope to the school, attention Lennie. Thanks!

Max Frazier, from first grade, was our top walker! He went around the playground 71 times! That’s over 14 miles. Congratulations Max!

Other top walkers: 1st grade: Carl Larsen (62), 2nd: Gabriel Doire & Elsie Woodruff (63 each), 3rd: Harper Modesto & Caden Jones (45 each), 4th: Aryanna Levin Godfrey & Craig Hrones (63 each), 5th: Sage Zephyr (41) & Sienna Zephyr (35). Owen Candito was our sole 6th grade representative. A number of guests also walked. The highest walker in that group was Alex Robb (42).
