Pennies For Patients- We were just informed that we raised over $1,100.  Mrs. Jillson’s 4th grade classroom raised the most. We would also like to recognize Caden Hebert as the student who raised the most for our school.  Thank you to all who participated.

WLC Slogan Contest-The slogan that was chosen was from Mrs. Mikolko's class and it is:

At Callahan, every student matters, every moment counts!

Congratulations to those students!
