Pennies For Patients
Our school is going to be participating in the “Pennies for Patients” campaign again this year. This is a wonderful campaign to help raise awareness and funds for a great organization that helps fund research and treatments for childhood cancer patients.
We will be collecting money for three weeks. The campaign starts on Feb 8 and will wrap up on Feb 26. There are a few special events and incentives along the way to motivate the kiddos to get out there and collect some money!
See Tuesday Folders for full schedule & and PTA facebook page for reminders!
Students can bring coins, cash or checks. To make it easier this year we also have on online donation page!
