This is the first time that I have used my blog as a way to get the word out about a great cause, but I think it's worth a try! The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life will take place on June 24th-25th this year at the Champlain Valley's Fairgrounds. Tricia McMahon, Austin's mom, will be taking part in this very important event to honor the memory of her mother who passed away in March. For more information on Tricia's relay team, please visit: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/TriciaMcMahon
Trish has also sent in containers to collect donations to fund the effort to help find a cure for cancer. There is a bucket in the staff room in the front of the building, and there is also a can in our classroom. If you'd like to donate, please send the money with your child in his/her green folder. Just be sure to note that it's for the Relay for Life.
