“Autism is something that people struggle with, so we thought as a community, school and family we would all get together to celebrate Easter with kids from around the neighborhood,” said club member Jacqueline Ghorra. “We are happy to support the cause.”

“The breakfast helped our students raise money for autism research, and it provided a wonderful time for the young girls and boys in our community,” said Principal Mary Ann Spicijaric. “I am really proud of our students for always reaching out to members of our community that need our help and our support.”
