  • “Change for a Change”

    Childhood Cancer Awareness Week

    Monday – Friday, September 18-22

    Starting Monday, Sept. 18 and ending on Friday, Sept. 29, students may bring in change or any monetary donation to put in the collection bag in their rooms to be donated at the end of the month to the Christian Bryant Childhood Cancer Foundation.  At the end of September, all donations will be counted and the Pre K-2nd and 3rd-5th class with the most donations will win a pizza party.  Also, students may participate in the following daily events to raise awareness for Childhood Cancer:

    Monday, Sept. 18:  Go Gold for Childhood Cancer- Wear gold or yellow, the color of the Childhood Cancer Awareness ribbon.

    • Everyday 46 children in the United States are diagnosed with some form of Childhood Cancer. That’s almost 16,000 children per year.


    Tuesday, Sept. 19:  Camo Day: We’re battling childhood cancer!  – Wear something camo. 

    • Some children will be in active treatment for 3 years for childhood cancer. We will battle childhood cancer as hard as we can!


    Wednesday, Sept. 20:  Pajama Day – Students may wear pajamas, but please wear regular shoes, not slippers.

    • Children spend many days and nights in the hospital for their cancer treatment instead of getting to go to school or getting to stay at home.


    Thursday, Sept. 21: Dress your Best for WES Picture Day!  – No special dress up today due to school picture day



    Friday, Sept. 22:  Favorite Team Jersey/Shirt Day – WES is tackling childhood cancer!

    • Childhood Cancer is not just one disease. There are more than 25 different types, each requiring their own research and treatment. Less than 5% of federal cancer research money goes to childhood cancer research. Let’s tackle this problem together!
