For the 3rd year in a row, 6th grade students were given an opportunity to raise funds for the St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Center by participating in the Letter-a-Thon.
As part of their English nonfiction unit, 6th grade students were asked to research a specific type of cancer and write an essay based on that research.
Mr. Triche said: “Ms. Guitterez and I are very proud of our 6th graders for working so hard on their research/essay and for showing such enthusiasm and generosity with the fundraising activity.” The program has been such a success. In the last three years, over 210 students participated raising a total of $18,869 for St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Center.
