DISTRICT EVENTS

Candice Robin, a St. Landry Parish resident and parent of a young daughter with craniofacial disorders, created a campaign to raise awareness of the disorder as well as help to spread the message of kindness. In her campaign, she has solicited donations to purchase over 200 copies of the book Wonder by R. J. Palacio to donate to our St. Landry local schools. When her daughter enters school, she will be zoned in the Port Barre area. Ms. Robin would like to donate copies of the book to be placed in our school libraries and/or classes where we have students with this disorder.
