Relay For Life

Weller School and PTA support American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life"

 

HI Weller Staff, Weller PTA and Weller Families,
     This year 10 people from Weller will be participating in the 24 hour event for American Cancer Society's "Relay For Life".  It is an event that raises awareness and money to fight cancer.  Here is how Weller community is participating:
     We just wanted to let you know a couple of events that will be happening here at Weller.  Weller School, Weller PTA and Team Hope have teamed together to support the American Cancer Society's "Relay For Life" event on June 23rd..   
     The 1st event will be "Purple Day" on Friday June 8th.  If you would like to participate please wear something purple that day.  Students will also be allowed to wear purple that day.  We will again be decorating the school with purple at recess and lunch.  Weller PTA donated purple material for a Team Hope and Weller Cares banner.  At the carnival we will have a table and we will be asking for a .25 cent donation (student) and $1 (adult) to put a hand print on the banner.  At the Relay we will be putting up the banner to show others that Weller cares.  
     At the Relay will also be displaying photos (copies) of 1)Survivors:  people we know who have survived cancer, 2)Fighters: people who are fighting cancer now,  or 3) Remembering People: people who lost their fight with cancer.  If you or a student in your class would like to give us a copy of a photo we will display them. After the Relay we can look for a place (multi-use room?) to display these photos (only if you think our community would like to see them).
      Our 2nd event will be a Golfland fundraising on Wednesday, June 13th from 4pm until 10 pm.  Golfland will be donating 50% of the ticket price.  Weller students and Weller PTA will also be included and invited.  We hope you can make it.  Team Hope is very competitive and would like to see who has the best score at the end of the evening.  A wonderful prize goes to the winner - another round of golf. 
      There is still time to join Team Hope and participate in American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.  Just click here to join Team Hope or donate:  http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=36794&team_id=1142637   If you are unable to join our team "Team Hope" please fill free to come and walk 1 or 2 laps with us on the day of the relay:  June 23rd-24th at the Milpitas Sports Center.  We would love to have you there.
Thank you for listening,
Team Hope: Mrs. VT, Mrs. K, Ms. Bilka, Mrs. Meica, Ms. Pommier, Ms. Deana, Ms. Yates, Ms. DaSilva, Ms. Mathias, Mrs. Gray
