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

Students prepare parents' breakfast, for a fee

by Jeb Bing

A fourth grade Lydiksen Elementary School Class, taught by Donna May, chose to dedicate its holiday party on Dec. 20 to raise money for Shepherd's Gate in Livermore.

Tisa Basseer, a parent, 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 personally presented to Catie Aznoe of Shepherd's Gate following the breakfast.

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

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