click here for more information /permission slip
Mount Greenwood school has been impacted by childhood cancer time and time again. Currently we have a few students that are undergoing Chemo therapy or have just finished. In addition, we have students that have been in remission for a few months but are constantly reminded of the battle as they go for tests to ensure that the cancer has not returned.
This Friday our students will participate in St. Baldricks. As of today we have raised, $12,890 !!!!
It is not too late to fill out the permission slip and have your child or yourself participate in such a great cause!!
All students that raise $50 and participate will receive a St. Baldrick's t-shirt. This t-shirt may be worn every Friday for the remainder of the year as a reminder of their contributions!!
In addition, I am asking ALL students, participating in St. Baldricks or not, to contribute a minimum of $1.00 and wear a GOLD t-shirt. The Gold Ribbon is the color and symbol for childhood cancer. This is in support for all of the kids at MTG and our staff that have had to battle cancer with their own children.
TOGETHER our prayers, thoughts and our contributions WILL make a difference.
THANK YOU to Our Stylists!
BOKS is an initiative of the Reebok Foundation.
