The students, families and staff of Nottingham Elementary School recently held their first Kids Walk event, which raised $14,573 for the  Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  The two-week campaign culminated on May 9, when all classrooms spent part of the afternoon walking around the Oxford Area High School track to help raise awareness of Type I diabetes and to support classmates who have been diagnosed with this form of diabetes. Second-grade teacher Amanda Young served as school coordinator for the event, and Jason Galante served as parent representative throughout the planning and implementation of Kids Walk.
