Students and teachers listen to Paige Galloway while she talks about CASA of Collin County and their work.

Monday, March 25, the Lower School had a special visitor in Chapel, Paige Galloway from CASA of Collin County. Galloway told the Lower School students about CASA and what they do. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. Their work centers around promoting and protecting the best interests of children that come from an abusive home or were severely neglected. The money raised from the Val-O-Gram sales in February was given to CASA. The Lower School raised $1,447 for CASA just from buying 25 cent Val-O-Grams. Not only did the Lower School students buy a piece of candy and a note for a friend, but they also helped children in need like those at CASA.
