On May 3rd Elysian Heights Elementary in Echo Park hosted a 5k fundraiser in the streets and hills of Echo Park and Elysian. The elementary is under the management of new Principal Emilio Garza, who seems to be well-received by the parents and staff as a person who is motivated to bring the school into the 21st century.
“The donations will go directly to the school for enrichment activities, technology and basic supplies to support instruction,” said Kim Pesenti, parent of a 2nd grader at Elysian. “The 5K was a fun way to involve the community and also support our Healthy Living Campaign.”
What’s the Healthy Living Campaign? More to come soon.
