Ride Janie Ride

Students have been collecting money this week for Ride Janie Ride, an organization that selects three cancer patients as recipents each year for their fundraising efforts. Our students have collected over $1900 in our first week and will continue collecting through next Friday. Each motorcycle displayed in our lobby represents $5 that has been collected. The gold motorcycles are from 6th grade, the green are from 7th grade and the blue are from 8th grade. I am so impressed with our students efforts for this event!

You and your students are simply amazing!
To see young people reach out and help one of their own touches my heart.
How wonderful of an effort like this cannot be measured.

Mrs. Myers,
Teachers make a difference in our children's lives. We pray it's an experience they can take with them to change the world to a better place. You and the school have done just that. We thank you for your generosity and kindness. Please let each child know they are loved and we will pray for them, that one day, they are Blessed by their actions today.

Mrs. Myers,

Words can't explain my feelings of today. Your students, as well as their fearless teacher leaders, were an inspiration to all! Our entire board was completely surprised, absolutely delighted & almost caught speechless! We knew all of the kids were inspired, but we had no idea that they had raised such an enormous amount of funds for the recepients of Ride Janie Ride! Thank you, your students and the staff of Lakeview JH & all the students at District #66. May God bless you all!!!

Sincerely,
Teresa Smets
