Hacienda schools show a lot of heart

Helping others, that’s what it’s all about. And our schools are certainly jumping in with both feet.

Bixby Elementary in Hacienda Heights participated in the “Jump for Heart,” for the American Heart Association. They were joined by the kids from Valinda Elementary who also jumped for the heart association at their campus.

Palm Elementary in Hacienda Heights held a “Pennies for Patients” assembly in the cafeteria, on Friday. The kids raised money for the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Kindergarten teacher Kristy Rivera reported that one student, Rudy Pedroza, raised more than $480. Amazing!

Principal Edna Moore said the school wanted to raise $1,400 this year. This is the second year that Palm has raised more than $1,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Congratulations!
