Cards for a Wish

The District recently took part in helping to grant the wish of a 14-year-old boy in Pennsylvania by creating holiday cards.

Class of 2018 graduate Lauren Faulds reached out to Superintendent of Schools Daniel Rehman to support Maddox Hyde. Maddox, an eighth-grader in Pittsburgh, has been battling neuroblastoma for the past eight years and his request this Christmas was to receive cards from all around the world.

Mr. Rehman asked all five school buildings in the district to support the cause by having each class to make cards for Maddox. On Dec. 14, Lauren collected the cards and drove to Pittsburgh to personally deliver them.

“Community is everything and helping someone out, even if it’s the littlest thing, is the greatest gift you can give,” said Lauren.

Members of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council had the opportunity to meet with district officials and architects to exchange ideas during the latest meeting on Dec. 6.

Superintendent of Schools Dan Rehman gathered the council, comprised of students from each building throughout the district, to sit down with district representatives to review proposed upgrades to the school buildings. Students had the opportunity to offer feedback and share comments and recommendations based on their experiences. The meeting served as a way for district officials and architects to consider the opinions of the students as building enhancements are discussed.

The SSAC ended this month’s session by reviewing what was discussed at their last session and brainstorming topics to discuss in the future. Students returned to their respective schools to report on the meeting and share ideas being discussed.
