Students from Washington Drive Primary raised funds to helped grant a child’s wish through the Make A Wish Foundation last spring. Alexa, a girl from Port Jeff who is challenged with a neuromuscular disorder, wished to go to Greece, and the Harborfields community made that possible for her. On March 14, students received a special visit from Alexa. She came to thank the school for raising funds to make her wish come true. Alexa shared slides, stories, and more from her trip to Greece. The students loved hearing from Alexa, and had many questions for her.

In addition to Alexa’s visit, students learned about the child that Washington Drive is supporting this year. Landen, who is from Port Jeff and is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, wishes to go to Ocean City, Maryland. Students were encouraged to help by doing things like donating their allowance, organizing a car wash, and more. As a school, Washington Drive will be walking for Make a Wish on April 21 at 9 am.
