Children Helping Children

Fairgrieve Elementary School students recently collected monetary donations to support sick and injured children at the Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse.

Principal Jean Ciesla said the annual project coincides with the school’s spirit day and is one of four community service efforts the entire student body and staff members participate in throughout the school year.

“It’s about the whole concept of giving back to others,” she said.

John Carbonaro recently attended Fairgrieve’s Morning Express program where he shared a story of thanks and appreciation as past donations from the school helped his daughter during treatment at the children’s hospital.
