Pancake breakfast planned to fund JE teacher's memorial

The Jordan-Elbridge PTO will sponsor a pancake breakfast on Sunday April 26 to raise money for memorials to be placed at the Elbridge Elementary School playground to honor Nancy Rizzieri, Linda Shalala and former teachers.

Rizzieri was a second grade teacher tragically killed last May while on her way to a dentist appointment. Linda Shalala retired in June of 2007 and passed away unexpectedly in January of 2008.

The fundraiser will help purchase memorial benches and flowering trees so the community can enjoy the playground and remember not only these two teachers, but all of the dedicated teachers of the Jordan-Elbridge Central School District.

The breakfast will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday April 26 at the Ramsdell Elementary and JE Middle School's cafeteria, Chappell Street, Jordan. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under.

The Jordan-Elbridge PTO will also accept monetary donations for the effort. Mail donations, payable to the Jordan-Elbridge PTO., Inc., to 120 Main Street, Elbridge, NY 13060.
