PICTURES: Faculty/Staff Join Together in Support of Fragile X Awareness & Buchanan Family
October 3, 2022
Faculty/staff from Lansingburgh schools joined together in support of community members, the Buchanan Family, and Fragile X Syndrome Awareness. If you’re unfamiliar with the Lansingburgh area, the Buchanans own/operate popular local eatery, Jimmy’s Pizzeria. In addition to owning Jimmy’s, the Buchanans always go above and beyond to help Lansingburgh schools and the local community. The Buchanans have students enrolled in Lansingburgh with Fragile X syndrome (FXS), so district faculty/staff participated in a fundraiser to support the National Fragile X Foundation and the Buchanans. Staff wore the shirts pictured on September 28 to show their support and raise awareness of FXS, and all the money raised from purchasing the shirts will go to the Fragile X Foundation. Between shirts sold and donations, the district collectively raised $965 for the Fragile X Foundation in support of the Buchanans!
