Pennies For Patients begins ! This is a fantastic opportunity for Whittier students to make a significant difference in the lives of so many fighting the battle with cancer. This is a fundraiser for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the money collected will help find cures for patients with blood cancer. This year, we are TEAM BLAKE, in honor of our student Blake Lovett who is currently undergoing treatment for Lymphoma. We really want to have a successful campaign and show Blake we are behind him! How can you help? You can donate your spare change jars, dollar bills, 50 dollar bills, write a check to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, or donate online! This year we are really hoping to have a strong online drive! Parents can set up an online account in their child's classroom team account and then share the donation link to their preferred social media. To do this, click on the link below, click on donate to a particular school and enter Whittier Middle School and Norman in the search. Click on John G. Whittier and then click on Join Your Classroom Team. On the next screen you will click on New account and may set up the account for your student. You should enter their Overtime teacher as the teacher when prompted. This is really quick and easy to do and I encourage everyone to set it up and get the word out! One elementary school in Moore really pushed the online drive and raised over $45,000! WMS, LET"S DO THIS!!
