NORWICH – Throughout November, Kelly Law, an elementary school teacher at Holy Family, is teaching her classes the importance of helping others and collecting dimes from her students in a program she calls Dimes for Diabetes.

Law is currently encouraging her kindergarten, first and third grade students to bring in dimes throughout the month to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
