Dr. DeLuca Pytell proudly supported Hamilton Elementary for their 2023 Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser, a heartfelt effort to give back to the school that played a crucial role in nurturing her own children. From preschool through the 5th grade, the principal and teachers at Hamilton have given their all to this community and helped to develop these children during these very formative years. They provided not only excellent education, but instilled citizenship, kindness, respect, and community in our students as well. The students that come out of Hamilton have an incredibly bright future ahead of them.
Over the course of ten years, every teacher and administrator with whom Dr. DeLuca-Pytell and her family interacted with treated them as if their children were the most important students in their lives. She fondly recalls, “It was like having a big family that always cheered our kids on!” This unwavering support has not gone unnoticed, motivating Dr. DeLuca-Pytell to consistently come back and support this exceptional school.
The Jog-A-Thon serves as the sole fundraiser conducted throughout the entire school year. It not only offers a fun and healthy way for students and the community to raise funds, but also plays a crucial role in enhancing academic experiences. The donations raised went towards beautifying the school and supporting each individual classroom. And despite Dr. DeLuca’s children no longer being enrolled, the memorable impact of the school has inspired her to maintain her ongoing support for these exceptional educators. Her commitment stands as a testament to the enduring influence of Hamilton Elementary School.
