0416 Oak grove bubbles

The students blew bubbles from the school football field, with each bubble representing a wish of hope to families with autistic children.

The entire student body of Oak Grove Elementary blew bubbles in Friday’s sunshine to culminate their fund-raising efforts for autism research. April is Autism Awareness Month and each class sold puzzle piece pins for 25 cents each to raise money. As a school, the students sold 6,712 pins and collected $1,678.18, according to the school. Lisa Johnson’s third grade class sold 1,323 pins, the most in the elementary. For their efforts, the class won a squirt gun party and the right for everyone to throw a pie in the face of Principal Regina Foley and the school’s speech pathologist. Whitley County Judge-Executive Pat White, Jr. also signed a proclamation in recognition of the event and Autism Awareness Month.
