Fourth grade raises thousands for Children’s National Hospital.
On December 6 classrooms were turned into bakeries for a great cause! St. Stephen's and St. Agnes School held the 26th annual fourth-grade bake sale benefiting Children’s National Hospital. The bake sale took place inside the classrooms, where faculty, staff, students, and parents purchased the baked treats. Fourth grade students organized the baking, advertised the sale around school, decided how to price the items, made change, and rolled the coins. Then they made a list of toys they’d like to buy, and took a trip to Target with their teachers to purchase the items with the bake sale proceeds.
This year our community helped raise $2,275 for the project, which allowed them to purchase many new toys to donate. All the gifts will go into Dr. Bear’s Closet at Children’s National Hospital for patients and their siblings to enjoy. The fourth grade will deliver the toys to the hospital and place the gifts around the Christmas tree in the lobby. They may also get to meet with Dr. Bear himself!
