Greetings Hoppers families!
Way to go Reidenbaugh!!!! We raised $8,556.23 for families affected by pediatric cancer. Thank you Four Diamonds for doing what you do!! Also, a huge thanks to all the Reidenbaugh families who attended our first Mini-THON event and donated for this awesome cause. We also had a great kick off to a super fun Mini-THON day!!!Students did such a good job raising money, their teachers lost their bet and had to sing Baby Shark this morning for them! Of course the kids helped them out a little bit!😉
