Throughout the month of October we will be collecting change for LLS to raise awareness and research for a cure. Each grade will collect for the entire month and on October 31 we will count change. The grade in high school and the grade in elementary with the most money will win an ice cream party. Most importantly, students will learn the importance of giving along with some education about Leukemia/Lymphoma. There will be more information soon.
