Pennies for Patients

Jefferson  Elementary School recently raised over $1,600 for Pennies for Patients and there is a personal connection to this year’s effort. 

Eric Bostrom, the father of one of the students in Debra Hanson’s developmental preschool class, is in remission with leukemia. Eric and his wife Erica stepped up and took the Jefferson drive to the next level by setting up an online donation page which brought in $300 toward this worthy cause.

Tuesday morning, the Bostroms joined the preschool class and Heather Hadler’s kindergarten class in celebrating the school’s spirit of giving back. Since 2003, Jefferson Elementary has raised $16,006 for Pennies for Patients.

It's official.....the Jefferson Elementary School replacement project is underway. The entire Jefferson student body emptied out to the north playfield Friday morning to watch the groundbreaking ceremony. And the students had some extra fun when they joined school board members, district administrators, and teachers in turning over some of the dirt with gold shovels.

"This is a very exciting day for our entire Jefferson family," said Principal Bobbi Buttars.

Design West Architects, Kennewick, is the architectural firm for the Jefferson replacement project. The new Jefferson will be 65,000 square feet in size and house 537 students.
