In Room 6 we were always working to help those less fortunate! Throughout the year, we donate to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation and we have raised $265 already this year ! We have been continuing to purchase water filters to help with the Cambodian Water Project. We have purchased ten filters, to date!
Our first school-wide philanthropy will be for October's Breast Cancer Awareness and we participated once again in the Denim Day campaign. This year, we raised $425! Hooray! Thank you to ALL of my math students who donated toward the campaign. You REALLY made a fantastic difference! Everyone really came through in the end. We have students on campus who have had family AND staff members affected by this form of cancer so your monies have really gone to a great cause (American Cancer Society). Thank you, thank you, thank you!
During November we have our Change for Charity campaign. During 1st period, we will collect donations to help those who are less fortunate in our own city. The monies are donated to CENA, an organization that helps local Santa Ana families who are having financial difficultes.
As a former 6th grader said, "It feels great to donate!"
