Running in Remembrance 144

Third through fifth grade students at Bayport-Blue Point School District’s Academy Street Elementary School were recently joined by Bayport-Blue Point High School students and members of the community to celebrate the annual “Friends of Carly Fun Run” in honor of former Academy student Carly LeStrange.

After being cheered on by kindergarten through second grade students lining the front entrance of Academy Street Elementary School, students, staff and their families joined one another to jog around the high school track in an effort to get in some exercise on the beautiful day.

Students from Bayport-Blue Point High School stood in front of a giant sign which was created in memory of former Academy Street Elementary School student Carly LeStrange.

This school year, the community raised $2,360 in honor of the Carly LeStrange Scholarship Fund, which is set to be awarded to a 2019 graduate of Bayport-Blue Point High School.
