Students and staff at Lee Avenue Elementary School in the Hicksville Public School District participated in National Bubble Gum Day to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Students were given permission to chew gum if they donated 50 cents; more than $500 was raised as a result. As part of the special day, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carl Bonuso read “Bubble-Gum Artist” by Lester Fizz to students, who learned the importance of altruism in a fun and educational way.
