Hildoer was one of the 21 acts (38 students total) that featured singers, musicians or dancers during the school's annual talent show, Thunderpalooza.

The school raised more than $700 for Manasota BUDS, a nonprofit dedicated to educating people about Down syndrome while also providing a network for families ing the understanding and acceptance of Down syndromeproviding families a forum to share and network as well as promoting the understanding and acceptance of Down syndrome.
