Our community is heartbroken at the loss of kindergartener, Baptiste Andry, and our hearts and thoughts go out to his parents and sister.
The school will be commemorating Baptiste's memory with this year's Longfellow ofrenda, which all students can contribute to by decorating hearts placed on the fence in front of the ofrenda.
Many of you have also reached out expressing condolences and offering support in various ways. The Andry family has asked that anyone wishing to donate in Baptiste’s honor, please donate to the Save the Children Charity - https://www.savethechildren.org/ or to the Longfellow PTO in support of our Book Fair and Super Summer math program: link here. We are honored to receive this support in Baptiste's memory and we will continue to inform the community of other ways to support the Andry family moving forward.
The funeral services for Baptiste will be held on Saturday, Oct. 28, at Judson Baptist Church. The address for the church is below:
Judson Baptist Church
1252 N Austin Blvd - Oak Park, IL 60302
The schedule for the services will be as follows:
