Subject: Andolz-Duron - 8th Grade SCI Spanish Immersion Message - FCV WALK-A-THON
Date: May 18th 2018
Greetings! I hope this email finds you well. Here is some information about an upcoming event at our school.
Please let me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
FCV Science Immersion
Fall Creek Valley Middle School (FCV) will celebrate our 22nd Annual Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) WALK-A-THON on Friday, May 25th during Science, Wellness and AVID classes. The event was started by former FCV teacher Bruce Houston back in 1996. One of his students was battling Leukemia. Inspired by his struggle, Mr. Houston organized students and staff to raise money and awareness to promote awareness and fund research for the LLS. Over the years, FCV has helped raise over $160,000 to support the fight against Leukemia & Lymphoma.
More recently, one of our staff members, Mr. Owens experienced a personal connection with these illnesses, when his young daughter, Maddie Marr was diagnosed with B Cell Lymphoma. The doctors and nurses at Riley Children’s Hospital treated Maddie Marr, and she is celebrating her 1 year remission.
Our students will walk around the FCV track on May 25th, during their Science, Wellness and AVID classes. On this day, soda, chips, ice cream and other goodies will be sold to help raise money for LLS. We recommend your student bring some spending money that day to more actively partake in the events of the day. Please plan ahead with your students, prior to Friday, May 25th.
In the meantime, students may help the fundraising efforts by purchasing LLS T-shirts for $5.00, and/or making donations to the school. In addition, we will have a HAT DAY, on Tuesday, May 22nd. Students will be allowed to wear a hat for the day, by donating a $1.00 during Advisory. A sticker will serve as validation that they have made their donation for the day.
Please note: The office will not be able to deliver spending money to students on the day of the event! Please do NOT drop off any money for student use on that day. Please make the necessary arrangements with your student prior to Friday, May 25th.
Thank you for your help and support with this event! We are looking forward to another great fundraising year to support Leukemia & Lymphoma Society efforts and research.
