Students raise more than $2,000 for local family
Tonganoxie Elementary School students raised $2,275 for the family of a parent who died earlier this month.
The school had a Pajama Day in memory of Alicia Johnson. She had a first-grader in the school district, as well as a 4-year-old.
Students, faculty and staff were allowed to wear pajamas to school March 15 with a donation. TES has about 690 students in grades kindergarten through fourth. The funds went to help cover various costs for the Johnson family.
