Unfortunately a few months back, we had a kindergartener diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. Elias underwent surgery at Akron Children's to remove the brain tumor on his brain stem and then just finished his first round of proton therapy (having lost his hair in the process) at Cincinnati Children's on Friday. Fortunately, the entire family was able to stay with Elias during his treatments in Cincinnati at The Ronald McDonald House free of charge. He has an older brother in my class who has spent a lot of time with his brother during treatments. 


I am also a Girls on the Run Coach at Hatton CLC. We coach a group of up to 15 4th and 5th-grade girls on self-esteem, etc. while also training them for the local GOTR 5K. This year’s run took place two weekends ago at Canal Park. This year we had 7 girls including Sydney Lutz, Josalyn Little, Eva Shiplett, Taylor Gordon, Myah Ray, Kendal Barlow, and Ellee Walter. Each year we have a community service project that the girls choose to do. This year, our amazing Hatton Heroines chose to make and sell buttons to the students of Hatton CLC and donate all money raised to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati in honor of Elias. The girls raised 354 dollars. We had one of those big checks made and we were able to dedicate it to Elias's brother Bentley on Tuesday, May 24th. Our girls also learned that they can make a difference for families in need even though they are young.
