Crothersville Elementary students and teachers only looked like they slept late and hurried to school last Friday. Actually, the elementary, dressed in pajamas and robes, took part in a fund-raiser to help Haiti earthquake victims.
Elementary student Brady Riley came up with the idea that students and teachers could pay a dollar to wear their PJ’s to school for the fund-raiser. And he learned that nearby Pepsi Cola would match dollar for dollar the money raised by the local group.
