Have a Heart for Christy

To support an ill student, the district came together to raise funds and lift her spirits. Robert Frost Middle School launched the Have a Heart for Christy campaign to benefit a student who has been hospitalized with a severe heart condition and is on the list for an immediate transplant.  

Students and staff at Frost, as well as parents, made generous contributions to the cause, and teachers came together to provide Christy with a special technology gift so that she can stay connected with her friends and teachers. In addition, students created heart-inspired paintings and drawings to express their care for Christy. Some of the artwork will be given to Christy to decorate her room.

Through these amazing community efforts, the district has collected $2,311 to help the family cover medical costs. A very special thank you goes to the Transportation Department, John F. Kennedy Intermediate School, CSEA members, and the students and driver of bus route #17 for their donation and card, as well as everyone who contributed to Christy and her family.
