Welcome to the second semester of high school! There a few things this month to highlight, and some important dates to note as well.
Pennies for Patients
This month, all of my World Geography classes will be participating in the Pennies for Patients donation drive through the O'Connor Student Council. The money raised will support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help patients with blood cancers get treatment more quickly. The donation drive will run February 2-27, 2015.
Of course, in O'Connor fashion, this is also a competition between classes to help grow the fundraising to a higher level. The students can donate in our donation box in the classroom or online at the link below:
The following prizes will be awarded to the class that donates the most:
First Place Class - Olive Garden Pasta Party, ticket to the Rampage and Spurs
Second Place Class - ticket to the Rampage
Third Place Class - ticket to the Rampage
