Earl Warren teacher’s efforts pay off with $4,600 for Pennies for Patients
During the month of February, Earl Warren Elementary School participated in the Pennies for Patients program, which raises money for children with leukemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers.
To jump-start the fundraising, fourth-grade teacher Arlette Garcia organized fun events. Students donated money and received water balloons to toss at teachers, pieces of tape to stick Principal Carolyn Olsen to a chair and paper hearts to cover up the word “leukemia.”
Thanks to Garcia’s efforts, students raised $4,621.94. Congratulations!
