Working Together for Student Success

Cupcake Fundraiser-May 15 & 16

Dear Parents and Guardians,

One of our school family members, teacher Michelle Ullyott who teaches kindergarten gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Everly on October 6, 2016.  This past weekend Michelle had shared the terrible news with us that little Everly had recently been diagnosed with Type I Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

It is a genetic condition that robs the body of its ability to sit, walk, eat or even breathe. It is fatal as most children do not make it to the age of 2. There is no cure. The family is devastated.

Thankfully, extensive research on SMA has brought one drug, Spinraza, to light that is very promising. Spinraza will help Everly’s body by utilizing the secondary back up genes that are currently unable to function. This will help to increase her quality and potentially duration of life! Everly was able to start treatment very quickly only two days after her diagnosis!

As Everly’s need for care increases, this family’s need for financial resources also increases. We as a school family will be having a cupcake sale with staff donating the cupcakes and all proceeds
Going to Michelle’s family.

MONDAY, May 15 for grades … K1, K3, K5, Grade’s 2, 4, 6, 8

TUESDAY, May 16 for grades …. K2, K4, K6Grade 1, 3, 5, 7

We will be selling the cupcakes for $1.00 at recess. We will start with each student buying one and will sell any remaining at the end.

Thank you for your support and please send your prayers and thoughts for little Everly.
