Although she wasn’t there at 27th and Madison Thursday, half of the proceeds will go to school secretary Anna Martinez. “She has liver cancer and she's worked here a long time and she's one of my mom's friends,” said sixth-grader Aliyah Montes
The school carnival is in its seventh year and it looked like all 540 students and their parents attended.
