In a recent fundraising effort to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), students and staff from Stratford School Fremont Curtis raised more than $37,000, beating the schoolÕs goal by $2,000. To mark the occasion, the Head of School, Ellie Tariverdi. pledged to make good on her vow to kiss a donkey on the last day of school if the goal was met. Tariverdi and other school officials were to pucker up to the donkey in front of the school community on Friday, June 1.
Since 2011, Fremont Curtis has participated in the LLS Student Series, which connects schools with local blood cancer patients and allows them to participate in the Pennies for Patients program which helps elementary and middle schools support LLS in its mission to create a world without cancer by raising funds.
