The Student Council is raising funds for Crayon’s for Cancer, an organization that provides toys to children in hospitals and helps to off-set costs of parking and meals for the parents. Bring your old, broken crayons to Mrs. Hatstat’s classroom and volunteer to peel the crayons. Volunteer to bring home a bag of crayons to melt and make into new crayons which you will return to Mrs. Hatstat when done. The “new” crayons will be for sale at the Book Fair on April 4 and 5, or School Store in April, May, and June for just $1.
