Today, Sorrick kicked off our Pennies for Patients fundraiser to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! In order to kick off our collection, students were invited to bring $1.00 and dress as a SUPERHERO! The theme of this year's fundraiser is "Every Hero Needs A Squad". Learning to work together, cooperate, and be kind & generous are all vital skills as we raise our youngest learners to be good people in our society. The students heard an engaging presentation about kids like them who are fighting battles with leukemia. They left the assembly excited to begin collecting donations for this spectacular cause; and as we know, every penny makes a difference!
We will have several more themed spirit days as we continue this fundraising journey. Students are invited to bring any amount of change/dollars on any day; but here are the special days to celebrate:
Friday 2/7 -- "Shade Out Cancer!" (bring $1.00 and wear your favorite sunglasses)
Friday 2/14 -- "Clean Out Your Console!" (staff will have collection jugs at drop-off/pick-up for you to clean out your loose change)
Friday 2/21 -- "Popcorn Day Donations" (all proceeds from Popcorn Day will be donated back to Pennies for Patients)
