JDRF is a nonprofit organization that raises money to research cures for juvenile diabetes. Fox Township Elementary School raised money by selling paper shoes for a dollar that the kids put their names on. The class that raised the most money with the shoes sprayed silly string on their teacher. All of the shoes were put in the schoolâ€™s lobby. Mrs. Kaveneyâ€™s class raised the most money. The kindergarteners had fun spraying the silly string on their teacher, Mrs. Kaveney. The school also put a large black tub in front of the schoolâ€™s main office. The students brought in candy to fill the tub. They weighed the tub and the teachers donated a dollar for each pound. The candy was then given to local senior centers and GKN.
Student Aidan Bobik interviewed some of his classmates about the JDRF activities.
