Fourth grade teachers at Conkwright Elementary School accept a check from the Alexis Thompson Foundation to allow students to see the movie “Wonder” after recently reading the book.

The foundation was named for Alexis Thompson, and was founded through First Church of God after Thompson’s death last year with a focus on helping children.
