The Bolles School supports Dreams Come True each year through the hard work of several Dreams Come True and Kids Helping Kids clubs on the Whitehurst, Bartram and San Jose campuses. Whitehurst Grade 5 students, in particular, have been working hard during the past semester to raise funds for the organization. On May 20, students hosted a special afternoon party for Noel, a local dreamer who has been battling leukemia since October.
The fifth graders raised more than $3,700 through a lower school bazaar, where they sold items, hosted games and designed items to raise money from their peers. As a result of their efforts, students were able to apply the funds toward a weeklong dream Disney vacation for the young dreamer and his family.
Bolles is a longtime advocate for Dreams Come True. It was the first school to participate in the organization’s Kids Helping Kids program when it was established nearly 30 years ago. There are three Kids Helping Kids clubs supporting Dreams Come True on the Bolles Lower School Whitehurst Campus, Middle School Bartram Campus and Upper School San Jose Campus.
