Lincoln School Holds Math-a-Thon Raising $3,838 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Lincoln Elementary School recently raised $3,838 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during its annual Math-a-thon. Kindergarten through fourth grade students collected donations for the patients at St. Jude and in a one-day Math-a-Thon, answered Common Core aligned math questions allowing them to practice their math skills. The top five student fundraisers were: Brionna Dumaine (1st grade), Luca DelPozzo (2nd grade), Sophia Dumaine (3rd grade), Alex DePasquale (4th grade), and Evan Sharpe (4th grade). 

During the past ten years, Lincoln students have raised $38,264 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Lincoln Elementary School teacher Mary Cook coordinates the annual event, which allows students to practice math skills, and to also learn a lesson in the importance of giving back to other children who may be in need of a helping hand.
