Fourth-grade teacher Marilyn Bryant, Principal Susan Goff and fifth-grade teacher Abby Eldridge amused Los Altos Christian Schools students by participating in a cricket-eating contest to celebrate a successful fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Eldridge won the contest by downing a dozen crickets in under 10 seconds. The crickets were locally sourced from Don Bugito, a San Francisco company.

Those who have ever wondered what crickets taste like can ask Los Altos Christian Schools Principal Susan Goff. Or fourth-grade teacher Marilyn Bryant. Or fifth-grade teacher Abby Eldridge.

The three educators recently participated in a cricket-eating contest as a celebration for elementary students, who raised more than $2,400 in the Pennies for Patients fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
