The Holt community suffered a great loss on November 1, 2016 with the death of 5-year-old Luna Younger. According to the Holt Schools Advantage Facebook page, Luna loved recess, lunch and math. That being said, the community is coming together to raise funds to purchase a playground bench in memory of Luna. A penny collection will occur at each elementary school in the Holt school district-- Dimondale, Elliott, Horizon, Midway, Sycamore, and Wilcox through November 30th. (Students of all ages--as well as adults--can make a donation to any of the penny collections.)

There are several other ways that you can make a contribution to the Luna Fund. See below for more information from the Holt Schools Advantage Facebook post:
