Each year, more than 12,000 children are diagnosed with cancer – equivalent to two classrooms of children diagnosed each day. More than 5,000 of these cases are blood cancer. Students learn compassion while working to “change” these statistics through Pennies for Patients. For the past 17 years students across the country have shown how much of an impact they can have by raising more than $261 million to fund breakthrough therapies and patient services; and more than $28 million in 2013-2014 alone!
We ask that students please bring in pennies, spare change or any amount to support the cause. Estimates indicate that there is $10.5 billion in loose change sitting idle in American households! Look between couch cushions, under the seats in your car or in your family’s junk drawer. You can also send checks made payable to LLS or Pennies for Patients. The top fundraising classroom at Woodside Elementary will win a Popsicle Party!
Thank you for your partnership in making a difference in the lives of local blood cancer patients. One little penny makes one BIG difference! If you have any questions, you can contact us at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Woodside is one of 5 schools in the district to be awarded the 2013 Washington State Achievement Award by OSPI. This is our 4th award in 4 years!!! Woodside is a great place to learn.
The calendar for next school year is part of the negotiations process with the teachers’ bargaining unit. Negotiations for that contract will begin in April. During negotiations, the school calendar will be established. The district will use the website, email, phone and text messaging system as well as media announcements to announce the calendar when contract negotiations are complete.
