Lower School Pennies for Patients

Lower School Pennies for Patients

Lower school is excited to be able to partner with Pennies for Patients, a service learning program that helps raise critical funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Our fifth-grade students have taken on the challenge to lead this service experience for the lower school. Each kindergarten through fifth-grade student will bring home a Pennies for Patients box and will begin collecting loose change. We have requested that the students not to solicit funds from others; rather, we have asked that they simply look around for loose change.

Our goal is to find a total of $2,000 worth of change around our homes and communities in the next three weeks! If we reach our goal, we will have a week of spirit wear and jeans in the lower school. The grade level that finds the most change will have a special lunch hosted by Olive Garden. Once students have filled their boxes, they can empty them at school and begin again. We have challenged students to go on scavenger hunts wherever they are, looking for loose change. I think they will be surprised how much change they will find if they take time to look for it. Thank you for supporting this special project.

We will be collecting change Monday, February 11. Boxes are due by Friday, March 1.
