Pennies for Patients (School Sponsored Service Learning Project) Begins

Over the course of 3 weeks, the entire school comes together in a school-wide service learning project as part of a national program sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Each classroom will discuss the importance of giving back to their greater community and why good citizenship is important.  Over the course of the project, students will determine what fundraisers they would like to create and drive, lead efforts to raise money, and count the money raised.  The final event is a school-wide assembly where the money raised is presented in over-sized checks to local students in our community who are battling leukemia and lymphoma.  

A very powerful lesson in the importance of giving!
