PPCES East Elementary participated for the first time in a very long while at Relay for Life. Our Student Council voted to make Relay for Life their charity for the year. It began in September with our BOGO (Buy One, Give One) Hat sale. Our students donated over 200 hats to Joe DiMaggio Children's Cancer Center. Throughout the school year students raised funds to ultimately donate it to The American Cancer Society. In total, our 19 students raised $2442.00. This amount was well over our anticipated goal. Our students and many staff members attended the event on Friday, March 31st. Chartwells donated the cookies for our booth sale. Officer Bucknam, our school resource officer, brought the famous pink police car and lead the walk around the track. Our students not only had fun, but learned to be empathetic and give to those in need. They loved it so much, they all agreed to do it again next year!
