Pasta 4 Pennies

February 6-24th we collected change for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Pasta 4 Pennies is a great way to get students involved and help make a difference in the lives of children suffering from Leukemia. No matter how much or how little a student was able to contribute, every penny certainly added up!!! The class that won the pasta party from Olive Garden collected over $400 with the school total of $3,907.94!!! What an amazing amount of money raised in 3 short weeks. Our school really does ROCK!!

  1. I love your pix and post. Did you put an assembly together with info. and props all yourself? Would you mind sharing?

  2. Hi Donna,

    Thanks for the comment! I wish I could take all the credit but I can't, two representatives came to the school to facilitate the assembly. They did an EXCELLENT job presenting what leukemia is in an age appropriate and engaging way. My suggestion would be to contact your coordinator to determine how to have someone come to your school to also give the presentation. I can also provide you with my contact if you don't have one.

    All the best,
