It’s that time again… time for our annual Pennies for Patients drive! Next week, Monday, March 20th through Friday, March 24th, we will be collecting loose change to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All money collected will go to support research and treatment of blood cancer. Here’s how you can help: All money will be collected in Homerooms. Students will each be given individual collection containers, and each HR teacher will have a collection container. Students turn in their loose change to their HR teacher each morning next week. HR teachers will keep a running total of their class collection amount. At the end of the week, we will calculate our schoolwide total! Our goal is to raise $1,200! (Last year we raised $1,165, so we CAN do it!!) There will be a doughnut party for the HR in each grade level that raises the most money. If you are not a HR teacher, please donate to a HR of your choice.
