Jefferson Raises Pennies for Patients
Elementary students spent the past few weeks collecting pennies for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. These pennies and spare change help
fund blood cancer research and patient programs here in Wisconsin and
across the United States.
As an incentive to
achieve the school's goal of $500, a pizza party was offered to the
winning class in grades Pre K � 2 and for grades 3-5.
Head Start Pre-K four-year-old program ran away with the competition
raising $77.17. For the intermediate grades, Mrs. Kulhanek's fifth
grade class won by raising $66.27.
Elementary School's Above the Influence group, which is comprised of
fourth and fifth grade students who promote clean and healthy
lifestyles, assisted with morning announcements, collecting the money
weekly and promotion of the program.
The staff and students hope this donation will help researchers find a cure and eliminate all blood cancers in the near future.
