Sixth-grade students in Laura Koenig’s class at Wisdom Lane Middle School in the Levittown School District have raised over $3,300 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. During the annual St. Jude Math-a-Thon, 50 Wisdom Lane students sharpened their math skills while helping children with serious illnesses. For 24 years, Wisdom Lane Middle School has raised approximately $115,000 by encouraging its students to participate in the math-a-thon, in which participants are sponsored by friends and family to solve math problems.
Wisdom Lane Middle School’s participation in the math-a-thon helps to provide the best possible medical care for patients, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to the money raised, the students learned about the importance of helping others. Ms. Koenig is proud of all the students who participated in this annual event and is thankful for the support provided by the school staff.
