We are often approached by students or parents who are passionate about different causes or charities. In most cases, the person approaching us wants to do something to raise money for their favorite cause. While we cannot raise money for every foundation out there, we are most certainly interested in developing a heart for giving in our students. Therefore, we would like to add a new opportunity for our students that will benefit a different charity each month.
On the last Tuesday of each month, we will allow students to wear a hat** of their choice to school all day, along with their regular uniform. In exchange for that privilege, students will donate one dollar to the designated charity that month. Secondary students will go to Mrs. Rodriguez’s window, pay the dollar, and receive a stamp on their hand indicating they have permission to wear the hat. Elementary students will pay the dollar to their homeroom teacher.
Here is the list of charities we will be donating to for the 2018-2019 school year:
September – Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, benefiting childhood cancer
October – Food for the Hungry, benefiting hunger awareness
November – The American Diabetes Association
December – Toys for Tots
January – Samaritan’s Purse benefiting human trafficking
February – Heart and Health Charities, benefiting cardiovascular health
March – SRTYVE Houston, benefiting youth violence prevention
April – GRACE, benefiting child abuse prevention
May – American Brain Tumor Association
If your cause in not on this list, please let us know and we will add it for next year.
**Hats that cause a disruption in the academic classroom will be confiscated
