SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - For the third year in a row, third grade students in Mrs. Jennifer Holmes’ class at Wilson Elementary School have been ‘Change Bandits’ for Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI. Students have been collecting change since October, checking their couches and cars, asking relatives at holiday gatherings, selling rubber band bracelets, even giving some of their own allowance. A Milwaukee radio station, WKLH, broadcast live from Children’s Hospital over Memorial weekend for their Miracle Marathon. Mrs. Holmes called during a POWER HOUR of the Miracle Marathon and the students’ donation was doubled to a grand total of $1,475.36! Principal Chad Renzelmann congratulated the class, commenting, “We are so proud of the students for following Wilson School’s motto of 4>2,” meaning it’s greater to do something for someone rather than to someone.
