Pennies for Patients
We have one more week left for our latest community service project, Pennies for Patients. It may not seem like your change will make a difference but it adds up.
Blood cancers are one of the most common forms of childhood cancers. Funding is desperately needed to find a cure so… search those couch cushions or car floor and turn them into your teacher by Friday February 24.
We are looking for parents interested in leading a VEX Robotics team in grades 3-5. For more information, please contact Mr. Tanioka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
