Grandparents Breakfast was hosted at Kimes School the week of Sept. 24. Grandparents and other family members got the opportunity to eat breakfast with their special student. Usually there is a book fair for families to visit as well, but this year, there was a different fundraising event.

Parent Teacher Organization leaders Sophi Kaschak and Angela Risley at Kimes School helped set up raffle baskets for families to win.

Grandparents and other family members were able to buy tickets for the raffle baskets and also Kimes T-shirts.

Risley explained the students donated items for the raffle baskets, and this “got the kids involved and got them excited about the raffle. It even made them proud of the raffle baskets.”

Kaschak wanted to take a moment “to thank the teachers for all of the hard work they did in making the raffle baskets so special.”

The raffle baskets came in themes, such as cooking, movies, camping, among other items. Toni Pflibsen and the preschool team made a stunning camping basket.

“Everything was donated except the cooler," Pflibsen said. "Families sent in two different types of blankets, fishing poles, flashlights, bug spray, dishes, and more."

The students loved walking in with their grandparents to see the colorful baskets. All of the proceeds go back to Kimes School. The school was appreciative of the families who donated items for the raffle.
