Pasta for Pennies

 Dear Parents, Students and Community Members,

 

Moffet is looking for your support with the Olive Garden Pasta for Pennies Program to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The students are being asked once again to bring in pennies (or nickels, dimes, quarters, dollars) to support the program. As you know this program raises money to help fund blood cancer research and provide education and patient services.  I have more information on this campaign.  If you are interested in seeing it, please let me know.  The Pasta for Pennies drive will begin Thursday, April 3 and end on Friday May 9th. The classroom that raises the most money will receive a “pasta party” sponsored by the Olive Garden Restaurant.  Last year’s collection goal was $800 and we raised approximately $1,800. This is also a great opportunity for service learning projects or just plain fun.  For more info visit www.schoolandyouth.org.

Students will be given a parent letter and an individual collection box that they can return at any time during the collection period.  Every class is eligible to earn a pennant if the following amounts are raised.   

$100-$199………………………Bronze LLS Pennant           Top Earning Class……….Olive Garden Feast

$200-$299………………………Silver LLS Pennant                   2nd Top Earning Class…..Pizza Party

$300 (or more)…………………Gold LLS Pennant               3rd Top Earning Class…..Water Ice Treat

 

This is a great opportunity to support a good cause and get rid of those unwanted pennies!  Thank you as always for your cooperation and support!

Sincerely, 

Mrs. Gomez

Room 209
