Friday, January 21st-Blue Day

When you have a moment to squeeze your babies tight and let them know they are loved; do so!  Prayers warriors are needed for a very adorable 2nd grader at Sanborn Central, Jalyn Bender.  As some of you may know she has been experiencing headaches and vomiting, and a recent CT scan showed a mass on the base of her brain that was obstructing spinal fluid from flowing properly, in turn causing her symptoms and hydrocephalus. She was admitted to the Sanford Children’s Castle for further imaging and taken to surgery to excise the tumor. Surgery went as well, and the vast majority of the tumor was removed. Additional treatment will most likely be needed to fully remove any “bad” cells that remain. She is one tough cookie-we know she’s got this!

A school-wide Penny War will start on January 24th and end on January 28th. Grade level containers will be located in the office. Proceeds will go to the Bender family to assist with medical expenses. The winning group will receive a doughnut and juice party.

There is a Venmo account set up for donations for Jalyns medical expenses- @prayersforJalynThere will be a bank account set up at First National Bank in Woonsocket, detail to follow.

Victory feels so good!  Congratulations
 to the girls basketball team on being the champions of the 281 tournament.  Your hard work was not overlooked and the trophy is yours.
Congratulations also goes out to Trista White who was named the outstanding senior (MVP) of the 281 tournament and recieved a $100 scholarship from Carr Chiropractic.
