By DEREK LOPEZ

 

Last Friday, Littlefield Primary students gather in the Junior High Auditorium for the fifth annual Coins For Kids presentation. Pre-K raised $291, Kindergarten raised $277, First Grade raised $366 and Second Grade raised $669 for a whopping total of $1,605.42.

 

The money was donated to the Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation, which was set up by Pat Tallungan. Present to receive the donation was Dr. Patrick Reynolds, who does research on Neuroblastoma. “These children reflect on the entire town of Littlefield,” Dr. Reynolds said. “It tells you what a great bunch of people they are because the kids wouldn’t do this if it wasn’t for their parents and their teachers. They’re not only helping children like themselves, but they’re learning to give back to society. That is such an important message. This is a fantastic school and a fantastic town

Our goal was to do a Make A Wish reveal again, but after our cake auction we realized, ‘whoa we are there,’” Kim Moss, Student Council Sponsor said. “I called Jordan [Young] thinking that we were just going to do a check presentation, but she said ‘no, you can do another reveal.’ The student body has been ecstatic, it has been a team effort.”
