Plum School Students Raise Money for Make-A-Wish

Schools are gearing up for the annual telethon, filmed at the high school.

It's no surprise that Plum School District is a big supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Each year, the high school students produce, direct and star in a six-hour long telethon to raise money for the organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening conditions. This year's telethon will air and be filmed on Dec. 21 at the school.

In the meantime, students and teachers have gotten a kick start on fundraising for the organization.

The Holiday Park Elementary teachers will be cooking, taking orders and serving the patrons of McDonald's on Route 286 tonight, Dec. 11, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Last month, the high school students held a Buy-A-Guy auction and raised $5,000 for Make-A-Wish.

At Regency Park Elementary, students also are participating in several activities and events through the end of the month. Students had the opportunity to donate 50-cents to dress up in different themes—twins, neon, dress up, rock star and more. Last week, they also purchased Santas and Grinches to hang up in the school's hallways.

Last but not least, students will have the chance to buy ticket to cream the teachers and principal Justin Stephans on Dec. 21, but hey, it is for a good cause after all.
