Southern Door 5th graders shine at CP Telethon

A tradition that goes back 39 years continued this past Sunday when the Southern Door fifth-graders performed at the 66th Annual CP Telethon in Green Bay. Nearly 50 students performed songs on stage and television before presenting a check of $47,210.51 for Cerebral Palsy center. Bridget Spude, a fifth-grade teacher at Southern Door Elementary School, says the individual efforts started back in December with a letter-writing campaign. She says the hard work shown by the students every year is always appreciated as well as the community support. [SPUDE] The Southern Door Fifth grade class has raised as much as $53,000 in past years. The 2020 CP telethon held at WBAY TV studios raised over $1.4 million over the weekend.
