Bright Spot: Paul Road elementary

Updated: Thursday, May 1 2014, 06:33 PM EDT

Rochester, N.Y. – Thursday’s bright spot shines on students at the Gates-Chili Paul Road Elementary School who are making a difference, one penny at a time.

The students collected $6,690.29 in pennies to donate to the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Their goal was $5,000.

Thursday’s bright spot also shines on school social worker Sandi Norris, who volunteered to shave her head if the students exceeded their goal.

She did end up fulfilling on that promise.
