Jericho's Math-A-Thon Kickoff

Jericho Elementary students participated in Math-A-Thon Kickoff assemblies during the first week of January. The school wide St. Jude's Math-A-Thon encourages students to raise money to fight childhood cancer. Students collect donations for completing mathematical challenges from sponsors. All donations received go directly to the children of St. Jude's Childrens' Research Hospital.

On January 4th,2019, fourth and fifth graders enjoyed listening to Delaney Unger speak about her personal experiences with osteosarcoma. Delaney is a Jericho Elementary alumna and  Selden Middle School student who was thrilled to come back  and help raise awareness for childhood cancer. Her story  definitely inspired our students to participate in this very worthwhile program.
