Our school wide service project, PINK WEEK, raised over $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Ashley Tiesman, Chairperson of this event, presented Komen Board Members with the check on Friday, May 8, 2009. Ashley received an application to join the September 26, 2009 Komen Walk and was asked to organized a Georgetown team! Many thanks to Cheryl Wirsing, Cindy Brown, and Kathy Weglicki for coming to Georgetown to receive the donation from our school.
Our students and staff embraced Pink Week and Pink Day in a positively perfect way! The event was organized by Ashley Tiesman, a fourth grader at Georgetown.
Our Georgetown families (staff, students, and parents) contributed $1,000 by purchasing bracelets, backpacks, rings, teddy bears for loved ones. What an incredible accomplishment–and all this money goes toward finding a cure for breast cancer!
Mrs. Kuieck and Mrs. McDonald were the PINKEST teachers…and we had a winning PINKEST student from each class. Thank you to everyone who participated. This was a fantastic way to raise money for cancer research and welcome in the first day of May. Enjoy this animoto slide show!
