Hats of every size, color, shape and style adorned the heads of the Castle Heights Elementary school students, faculty, staff and volunteers Tuesday.
They were В donning their hats in support of Katelynn Sanderson who is a first grader in Mrs. Haddock’s class at Castle Heights.
Sanderson is in need of heart surgery and she and her family are in Wisconsin for the procedure. В While the family waits, the cost of travel and day-to-day expenses are piling up.
Students were asked to bring a dollar or more for the privilege of wearing a hat to school for the day. Even with only 550 students more than $1,100 was raised through the вЂњhats on for KatelynnвЂќ event. Any one wishing to help can drop off donations to the office at Castle Heights Elementary School.
