Six Lindbergh Elementary fourth-grade students, Brenna Ring, Marissa Tranter, Alisa Cravak, Cristiana Christiano, Claire Frank, and Alannah Kane, wanted to make a difference. Under the direction of Cathy Miller, the school counselor, the students selected the Make-A-Wish foundation to help make a child’s wish come true.
To prepare for the collection day and to get the school community involved, the students read announcements on the video announcements, created posters, and created wishing wells for the collection of money. On May 22, Lindbergh students and staff bought a star for $1 to wear a hat for the day to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. The school raised $523 for this worthy cause.
