We have another golden egg winner! Congratulations Lizzie! Finding the golden egg enters us into a drawing to have a school zoom with Finn. Finn is one of the American Heart Association's heart heroes who was born with a very sick heart. If he had been born 10 years ago, his outcome would have been very different. But he's well and active and wants others to learn about heart health through an activity called Finn's Mission.
It's BOOK FAIR time!
