The Early Childhood Center at Central School Road recently held a pajama drive and collected 128 children’s pajamas for St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The pajama drive was held in honor of Colytn, an early childhood student who has been battling a serious liver condition and is being treated at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
The pajama drive also was part of the school’s continuing character education program and held in celebration of the Francis Howell School District’s 100th birthday. The school set a goal to collect 100 pajamas to commemorate district’s centennial. Thanks to the generosity of the center’s students, parents and staff, the goal was exceeded and additional money raised and donated to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
