Parkview first graders paint picture to support classmate, hospital oncology department
Mrs. Hagan's first grade class at Parkview Christian Academy in Yorkville recently painted a picture to hang in the Pediatric Oncology hallway at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield. Roman, a first grade student at PCA, has been undergoing treatment there since June 2016 for ALL Leukemia. Roman is pictured with his brother Hunter, sister Sadie, the first grade class, first grade teacher Mrs. Hagan and art teacher Mrs. Gabrielsen. This painting was a collaboration between Mrs. Gabrielsen, Mrs. Hagan and the first grade class. The picture also includes Roman's entire family's fingerprints. The class is excited to share this piece with all the children at CDH. To follow this story you can go to: facebook.com/RomanTOUGH/.
