Palm Crest Elementary School held a spirit rally recently. Kids dressed as characters from their favorite books. Students of the Month were acknowledged for being positive role models, and Terrific Kids from 6th grade were given recognition. Students raised $2,500 in coins for the recent Pennies for Patients fundraiser. In another fundraiser, students Ashley, Nicole and Elijah Otieno made a narrated slide presentation about the need for shoes and school supplies in Kenyan villages where their father, Dr. Charles Otieno, was raised. The PCR Student Council will lead the fundraiser to collect these items, which will be shipped this summer. The community is invited to participate.
