On the last day of school, when most students anxiously count down the minutes until they can kick off their summer festivities, Vista Academy of Beaumont students are excited to remain at school to perform a service for a family in need.

Friday, June 6, beginning at noon and continuing until the cars stop coming to Vista Academy of Beaumont at Triumph Church, students, teachers and volunteers will be hosting a Car Wash & Link Sale Fundraiser for the Johnson Family.
