4th grade class raises $511 for Shepherd's Gate

Students prepare parents' breakfast, for a fee

Before leaving for their holiday break, a fourth grade Lydiksen Elementary School Class, taught by Mrs. Donna May, chose to dedicate their year-end party to raise money for Shepherd's Gate in Livermore.

Parent Tisa Basseer said the students invited their families to the restaurant-themed party where the students entertained their guests by reciting their own poetry. They also prepared a full breakfast menu, complete with prices and fully staffed the event.

The class raised $511, which the students have now personally presented to Catie Aznoe of Shepherd's Gate.

The event was a culminating activity for the 4th grade class math unit on menu studies.

"We are proud of our 4th grade class for all of its hard work and for donating the class party to such a great cause," Basseer said.
