From October 8th to October 26th, the entire student body participated in Pennies for Patients. Pennies for Patients is a special program sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s School and Youth Program. This is a service learning program that gives students the unique experience of working together to raise both awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancer.
Each class raised funds towards the school wide Pennies for Patients fundraising goal. The total raised was $935. The third grade class raised the most at $208.82 and earned a pizza party as a result.
During the Pennies for Patients event, students held a fundraiser where anyone could dress like a superhero for the day. The students in the following photos dressed as various superheros including as our own science teacher, Ms. Emily.
