From March 20th through April 3rd Carol Dye's Heads Up! Mini Relay
for Life class, along with the staff, students and parents of Pleasant Hill Elementary raised $1720.25 to donate for cancer research.
During that time period there were a variety of activities that students, staff and parents participated in to help raise money. The activities included:
Hat Day - Students paid to wear their favorite hat to school for the day
Danglers - Danglers were purchased from March 20th through April 3rd in honor and memory of someone that had cancer. The danglers were displayed on the wall in the multi-purpose room of the school. On Tuesday evening, April 4th, the danglers were put in a container for a prize drawing.
Balloons - Relay For Life balloons were purchased in honor and memory of love ones.
Class-Individual Fund Raisers - All the students were given envelopes to collect money from March 20th through March 29th. The student that collected the most money in each of the 2 grade divisions won a $10 McDonald's gift card and led their class in the Mini Walk. The class that raised the most money won an Ice Cream party and led their class division in the Mini Walk.
On Friday afternoon, March 30th the students were divided into 2 grade divisions and each grade division participated in a presentation on "Fast Foods" by Joyce Morgan, a Magic Show by the Great Haughtini (Patty Haught), a snack and then the "Mini" walk.
