Berrendo Elementary School staff show off their blue jeans and patriotic-themed outfits as part of a “dress-down” fundraiser for the GI Go Fund, which provides veterans with access to job training, financial assistance, housing benefits, legal support and more to transition back to civilian life. Stacy Ware, a BES teacher, presented the idea to the Roswell Independent School District’s school board and the fundraiser was approved district-wide at last month’s school board meeting. Principal Brittany Griffin said BES had raised $483.23 with staff donating to the GI Go Fund to wear jeans to work for two days. (Roswell Daily Record Photo)
