On September 13, 2018, Ms. Adriana Ommen and the students at Arndt Elementary welcomed a very special guest.  Ms. Janee Villarreal, founder of the Golden Heart Project, spoke to the students to raise awareness for childhood cancer.  Ms. Villarreal herself is a cancer survivor and wanted to help the cause in any way she could, so she started The Golden Heart Project.  Ms. Villarreal shared her story with the students and spoke to them about compassion.  The students at Arndt Elementary pledged to support childhood cancer awareness and to be kind and caring to cancer patients.  Thank you, Ms. Villarreal, for helping bring awareness to such a great cause.
