On Sunday, March 7, Kraemer Middle School ASB students, teachers, and administrators brightened the day of local medical workers at Placentia-Linda Hospital in Placentia. The school presented two new Keuring machines with coffee pods and other snacks to show their appreciation of the organization’s continued service to the local community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Students also shared their artistic abilities by creating an inspirational chalk art message on the front sidewalk of the hospital and posters for the nurses’ stations.
Since the beginning, doctors, nurses, first responders, and other support staff have served as integral players in the local response to COVID-19. Back in January, Kraemer Middle School also surprised Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) nurses and support staff in a similar fashion. In PYLUSD, school nurses have been led by Lead Nurse, Michelle DeHaven, who monitors and manages all COVID-19 cases from their headquarters on Kraemer’s campus.
The efforts to recognize local medical personnel have been spearheaded by Kraemer teachers Shane Twamley and Ricky Castro, who took it upon themselves to involve ASB students and collect donations from staff and community members to purchase the donations. Way to go, Cubs!
