After learning that one of Blair Moody Elementary School’s first graders is battling leukemia, the Student Council wanted to find a way to help. They found it in the Olive Garden’s Pasta for Pennies! program benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Students collect money and after a few weeks the class that has collected the most money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will be treated to an Olive Garden lunch at school.
Two weeks ago students were provided with collection boxes to take home and keep in their classroom. Student Council members have been hard at work collecting and counting the donations daily. During the morning announcements students have also been learning a little bit about Leukemia and Lymphoma every day.
The competition for the Olive Garden lunch is close. With only a few days left, there are four classes that have each collected over $100. In total the school has collected nearly $800 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Blair Moody’s Student Council is comprised of 10 students from the third, fourth, and fifth grade classes. These bright, young, leaders are dedicated to making a difference in their school and community. They are off to an amazing start.
