Results for the JES Ma'Liyah White Hat Days: As you may know, one of our fourth-grade students, Ma’Liyah White, was involved in a terrible accident in January that resulted in a long hospital stay and time spent at a rehabilitation center where she is currently still becoming stronger.

to wear as well in honor of Ma’Liyah’s favorite color.
