Students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School recently participated in St. Jude’s Math-A-Thon Fundraiser to benefit children battling cancer and other terminal diseases at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Participation in the fundraiser allowed students to practice and develop their math skills while helping support medical treatments for sick children. Students completed numerous math equations and solicited donations based on the number of problems they solved or donations for their participation in the Math-A-Thon.

Spearheaded by Thomas J. Lahey Elementary teacher Augustino Rettino, the school raised $3,008.25, which helped cover the cost of two days of chemotherapy.
