The McDonogh community jumped out of bed and came right to school, still dressed in their pajamas, on "Wear Your PJs to School Day," Tuesday, April 18. The school-wide event, which included photos of the entire school community and an Upper School “Jammiefest,” was coordinated by student leadership groups in each division. It was the culmination of a pajama collection drive called "PJs for T.J.," benefitting the Casey Cares Foundation. T.J. is a McDonogh 8th grader who received support from Casey Cares during his battle with brain cancer. Thankfully he is now in remission. Casey Cares gives new pajamas to critically ill children at hospitals, hospices, and at home. It is estimated that McDonogh students donated nearly 1,000 pairs of new PJs to the cause.
