Seriously...this is HUGE!

After a disconnected school year, the Madison Education Foundation generously provided a grant to sponsor the #PullYourWeeds® Program at the Central Avenue School in Madison, NJ. To help end the school year on a bright and uplifting note, Shanna Truffini and her Illustrator/Videographer, Kelsey Jordan delighted the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders of CAS by creating 'Madison's Longest Hopscotch'. Their incredibly supportive Principal, Mr. Thomas Liss handed out custom #PullYourWeeds® pins as prizes for completing the course!
