Relay for Life Update

For the past several weeks, students and teachers have been collecting money for Relay for Life. Each classroom had a water bottle where dimes were collected everyday. This week all dimes in the school were collected and added to the schools total donation which will be given to fight cancer. So far over $3,000.00 has been raised towards our goal of $6,000.00. Mrs. F. Rorie's Kindergarten class collected two bottles full of dimes, and other change, and had the change turned into a check for $184.51 which they presented to Mrs. Avant one of the Relay for Life team members! Go Mrs. Rorie's class!!!! Also, the Girls on the Run team collected change in a tennis shoe. They completely filled the shoe and it was presented to Mrs. Avant on morning announcements this week.
