From Mrs. Young last week: It's one of my favorite days! Red nose day! Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign to end the cycle of child poverty and ensure a healthy future for all children. By purchasing and sporting a red nose, not only are we bringing awareness to the cause but we are helping to end child poverty! Thank you to my classroom Grammy for providing the noses for all of my kiddos ♡
