Students collect Pennies for Patients; fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
This year, classes at BAK Elementary and Bluff View Elementary (grades 2, 3, 4) participated in a three week fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society called Pennies for Patients. We joined along with 450 other schools across Wisconsin raising funds for lifesaving cancer research. Our students also learned other lessons such as service, leadership and philanthropy which will have an immeasurable impact on many lives.
Students at BAK raised a total of $760.40 with the Michele Bartels afternoon PK class raising $124.31. Bluff View raised $1016.78 with Katie McCullick’s 3rd grade class raising $152.48. The winning class from each school will be treated to a pizza party in the near future as a thank you from the Leukemia Society. Karen Reilly, School Nurse, organized the fundraiser again this year. She wishes to pass along her thanks to all the students, teachers, and parents who helped make this another memorable year.
