Fall City Elementary School students are collecting Pennies for PJ, to help their school custodian.

Patrick "PJ" Duvall, the senior custodian, was diagnosed with leukemia over the summer. Students have set up a "Pennies for PJ" collection jar in the school's main hallway, to help Duvall with his medical expenses. The school will also accept donations to a benefit fund account set up for Duvall at Sterling Bank. All checks should be made out to Patrick Duvall.

Duvall's story will be posted on www.caringbridge.org. To find his page, visit the website and search for patrickduvall.

In 2009, Duvall was honored by the Snoqualmie Valley Schools Foundation as one of its Educators of the Year.
