At its final meeting of the school year, the Carle Place School District Board of Education recognized three students at Cherry Lane Elementary School for their outstanding fundraising efforts to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The students raised the funds as part of their involvement in the Cherry Lane Walk for a Cure program, which the school has participated in for 22 years. This year, Cherry Lane raised $4,500. Kindergartner Gabriella Penn, first-grader Aaron Daniel and second-grader Vincent Iadevaia raised $210, $150 and $110, respectively, and were honored for being the top fundraisers in their grades.
