Students at the John M. Marshall Elementary School in East Hampton are raising money for wellness initiatives and the school's Hometown Heroes program through a dance-a-thon. Children are collecting pledges from family members, friends, neighbors, and businesses in exchange for a promise to dance their hearts out on Tuesday, when all gym classes will be dedicated to the fund-raiser.
The Hometown Heroes program honors essential workers here who played important roles during the pandemic. A character education campaign is also associated with the dance-a-thon, in which the students will learn about healthy choices and creating positive relationships during the week leading up to the event.
