At Monday’s pajama assembly, grade 3 students received a visit from their grade 10 Eagle Buddies to mark the conclusion of another successful pajama and book drive. The annual effort collects pajamas and books to donate to the Pajama Program, which distributes them to children living in shelters, temporary housing or otherwise unstable conditions. This year’s drive collected 272 pajamas and 489 books.
Students arrived dressed in their preferred sleepwear and the third graders each brought a book to read with their buddies. Continuing with tradition, upper school division head Butch Keller was a hit with the students gathered at the gym, as he arrived in his pajamas and delivered a delightful bedtime story from his rocking chair.
