Jackson Middle School Raises Money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
The Jackson Middle School students participated in the “Pennies for Patients” drive again this year for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. This is an event that the students look forward to participating in every year and there are two weeks set aside to collect pennies. The students bring in their pennies each day and a tally of each home base is kept and the home base collecting the most money based on a percentage of the number of students is the winner of a pizza party.
This year was no different than in the past, the excitement was there to see who would come out on top. The school raised $2017.01 this year and the following home base classrooms were the top three winners:
1st place went to the homeroom of Mrs. Dempsey raising $228.77. This class will receive a pizza party.
2nd place went to Ms. Chapman’s homeroom raising $184.82 and they will receive a pizza party.
3rd place went to Ms. Gardener’s homeroom $126.46 and this class will receive doughnuts and orange juice.
A special thank you goes to all the students and staff for bringing in their change from February 6-17, the dedicated Student Health Council members for conducting the Pennies for Patients Campaign, Mr. Broermann for sponsoring the “Principal of the Day activity, 6th grader Alexis Bragg filled the shoes of the principal, Ms. Chapman, Mr. Utley, and Mr. Lord for volunteering for the “Pie in the Face” activity, and the students who participated in the “Music Day” activity during their lunch periods on Friday. An activity such as this brings students closer together when they know that with everyone working together and doing a small part can benefit someone else.
Jackson Middle School Student Health Council will be designated a member of the 2017 Leukemia & Lymphoma Lifesavers Club.
This worthwhile project is sponsored by the Jackson Middle School Student Health Council under the direction of advisors Mr. Greg Potter and Mrs. Vicki Williams. This select group of students is very interested in the health of all students in the school. They are always excited to see how much they will be able to send to the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society which is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services.
