A 2-year-old contest has commenced that allows parents, teachers, students and staff from the Patterson Joint Unified School District to give their favorite school employee a break by allowing schools administrators to take over part of the employee’s workday. The concept has become very popular and enables the district to raise money for the March of Dimes.

PJUSD employees raised about $2,100 culminating in a ticket drawing conducted at the school board meeting on Monday, April 7.

PJUSD Superintendent Phil Alfano and assistant superintendents Steve Menge, Shawn Posey and Veronica Miranda will work part of a local employee’s workday.

PJUSD music teacher Susan Ingram’s tickets were pulled twice on Monday night and Posey and Miranda will work in her music class at different times by mutual agreement with Ingram. Meanwhile, Menge will be on yard duty at Apricot Valley Elementary School after spring break. District Superintendent Phil Alfano will also put in part of a workday in room 402 at Patterson High School. The students in that classroom purchased $50 worth of tickets from their recycling money.

March of Dimes is an organization that aims to improve the health of mothers and babies. Local school employees will participate in a 3-mile walk on Saturday, April 26 at Graceada Park in Modesto.

For information: Gloria Pinedo, team captain, 895-7700.
