Easter Baskets Bring Smiles


The Beach Kids Foundation distributed Easter baskets to every Beach Elementary student on Thursday, April 18, just before the kids headed home for a 4-day Easter break. The colorful  baskets were prepared for grades Kindergarten to 5th grade with age-related toys and candy and were each received with a big smile and a hearty “Thank You!” One student told us with a grin, “This is so cool! And now I have a basket for the egg hunt Saturday and the one at home!”
