This holiday season, third grader Connor Peters is using his compassion for others to lead his fellow Blue Point Elementary School students in a fundraiser he calls “Connor’s Christmas Cheer.” Through this fundraiser, the students have so far raised $800 and counting to buy Christmas trees, lights, ornaments, tree skirts and other holiday décor for local families struggling financially.
Peters enjoys making a difference and says “it’s nice to see everyone pitching in to help people.” Bayport-Blue Point School District thanks Peters for being such a thoughtful member of the community, and a wonderful example for his classmates to follow.
