Pennies for Patients
This year our school will be participating in the Pennies for Patients Campaign to help raise funds to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in their fight against blood cancer and their efforts to improve the lives of patients and their families. Your child was given a parent letter and their own personal collection box to take home and start collecting coins, dollars, and checks! Please help support your child by helping them collect as much money as they can from family members and friends. Encourage them to take their collection boxes wherever they go. Donations can also be made online by visiting: www.studentseries.org. Look for Silk Hope School and your child's classroom. Checks can be made out to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The Campaign will officially start on Tuesday and last for 3 weeks. The class with the most money collected will receive a pizza party so please help your child's class reach their goal!
Parent & Student Basketball Game
There will be a parent/student basketball game on March 2 @6:00. The cost is $3.00 per person. There will be pizza, along with other snacks and refreshments. If you have any questions, please ask Mrs. White.
