Jefferson Elementary School Raises Money for UW Children’s Hospital
Jefferson students raised over $1500 for University of Wisconsin’s Pet Pals.  Pet Pals is a program that brings pets into the UW Children’s Hospital to help comfort children while they are dealing with cancer or trauma.  As part of our service learning project, students were able to meet some of the pets and hear about the benefits from one of our students who benefited from the pets while she was at the hospital dealing with a severe injury to her arm.  As part of our celebration and with the success of the project, the UW Marching and Bucky Badger came to Jefferson and performed the “5th quarter.”
