The first grade student is battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.

This month, there was a school-wide “Dance-a-thon for Julian.”

The same process was used to gather sponsors.

On Nov. 17 and 18 all students participated in a dance-a-thon in the KPS gymnasium as each student gathered sponsors to assist in raising funds to assist their fellow students.

In late October the fifth grade students from KPS held a spell-a-thon for Julian.

Students studied a list of 100 words.

Each student gathered sponsors to donate an amount per word spelled correctly.

After the test was administered the amounts were tallied and students collected their sponsored monies.

A great deal of fun was had by students and staff.

Between the two fundraisers, the students at KPS raised more than $4,000 for Julian and his family to help with their expenses.

A huge thank you goes out to the Kingsford Park Community and the students for their efforts.

We wish Julian and his family the very best.
