Spectacles for Studious Scholars!

Thanks to generous donations through Donor's Choose, our kind-hearted and ever diligent teachers, Ms. Carla Biggs  and Ms. Mary Lu were able to give over 80 children an equitable opportunity to "see."  
Students meet with doctors and asked them questions about their jobs. In addition, they were tested and fitted for their much needed glasses.  Not only were the teachers and students involved grateful for the glasses but they were also appreciative of the genuine attitude exhibited by the team from National Eye Care and Warby. The students really enjoyed the staff's amicable encouragement. 

"I want my kids to know that I believe in their success and will do anything I can to help them succeed."
-Ms Biggs
