The Mountain View Elementary School, through the organizational efforts of the elementary school Student Councils, raised a total of $920.74. At the high school level, through the organizational efforts of the high school Student Council, $603.75 was raised. Checks in the total amount of $1,524.49 were recently presented to Tami Cortright, Susquehanna County Red Cross Program Director.
Funds were provided by way of a dress down day for professional and support staff and a hat and pajama day for the students. Adults donated $5.00 for the privilege of dressing down for the day. Students donated $1.00 to wear a hat and/or $1.00 to wear pajamas.
The enthusiasm and effort shown by all involved made this a truly successful endeavor.
