WONDERful News

Deal Island 5th grade students have been working hard the past few months to raise money for the Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA). Their goal is to raise money to send a child and their family to a retreat that allows children to interact with others who also have facial differences. Our students have raised $1,100 by hosting $1 casual days, a bake sale, Christmas candy grams as well as a Wonder raffle. Students have independently fund raised the money under Mrs. Messick’s guidance. We are extremely proud of these students who have made a difference for a child and their family.
