During recesses, CJL’s Spirit Team made large gemstone magnets with a variety of images that they sold at the CJL’s PTA Holiday Fair on Saturday, November 17. The students decided to sell them with 50% of sales going to filling post-procedure treasure chests at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital or the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Made up of 5th graders, the Spirit Team is sponsored by the CJL PTA and Staff Jeans Day funds, and is advised by 5th Grade Teacher, Luba Greene. With the Spartan Head designs selling out quickly, sales for the day were $161.50! Remaining gemstone magnets will be sold at CJL in the mornings before school. Spirit Team members will create a card with a message to accompany the donation.
