Setting a positive example for the building’s young students, Babylon Elementary School teachers and staff have been raising funds for various charities each month through an initiative called Jeans for Dreams. During this annual tradition, staff members donate money to wear jeans on Fridays. At the end of the month, the collected funds are donated to a different charity. Past organizations include those assisting with MS, breast cancer, juvenile disabilities, cystic fibrosis and autism research.

This February, the school dedicated their efforts to raise funds for the American Heart Association. Teaming up with the “Go Red for Women” initiative, the school’s students and staff members wore red-colored clothing on the first Friday of the month.
