William Tell recognizes Childhood Cancer Awareness month

-A A +A

William Tell Elementary recognized September as Childhood Cancer Awareness month with several activities.


Teachers held a door-decorating contest to raise awareness and students and staff wore yellow one day to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, an effort initiated by Emma and Ryan Harding. Any student who donated $1 had his or her name placed on a balloon, which can be seen in the picture behind the two students. The $200 raised went toward the Light the Night Walk team, which includes Emma, Ryan and their mother, Lynnann.
Staff contributions of $75 went to the Lydia Haycraft benefit. Finally, students will have a Hat Day with any donations contributed to the Lane Goodwin Cancer Research Fund.
