The middle school Student Council recently completed a successful “Pennies for Patients” fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

During the month of January, the students raised funds through an online campaign, organizing several in school bake sales and hosting a “pay to play” fundraiser, where they sold passes to peers to play computer games during their lunch periods. Additionally, the council held Pajama Friday, which enabled teachers to wear their pajamas to school for a $5 donation.    

The Student Council’s efforts yielded a $1,672 contribution to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which surpassed their initial goal of $1,200.
