Kent said that it is estimated that during the past 65 years, roughly 24,000 banana splits have been prepared and served to the schools’ students by the Rush County visitors. Another tradition is the annual balloon launch which according to Kent, is considered a highlight for the children and their Rush County visitors as well.
This year a short list of some of the items needed at the school are: deodorant, body wash, liquid laundry soap, hand sanitizer, used play station or Xbox game systems with age appropriate games, any types of after school snacks, cold medicine, a locking medicine cabinet.
