Math-a-thon for St. Jude
The annual Math-a-thon is in full swing at Heartland Christian Academy through November 7, 2014. If you haven’t had any eager young students knocking on your door yet, you’re welcome to donate using our egiving form (designate your gift to St. Jude’s, and to a specific student if you wish), or visit the HCA page on the St. Jude website.
Parents, it takes just a few moments to register your child, and then they can receive online donations by sharing the link via email or social media.
Also, “Kiss Cancer Goodnight” Day is Friday, October 17th. For every dollar that the children bring in to help St. Jude, they receive a Hershey’s kiss.
UPDATE 10/20/14: Last week the elementary participated in a Kiss Cancer Goodnight day. This event is the halfway mark of our Math-a-thon program in which we raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The children enjoyed wearing their pajamas to school and received a Hershey Kiss for every dollar they brought in. This is our 3rd year doing a Kiss Cancer Goodnight Day and we blew past what we raised last year—$1,145.63. Great job, HCA Elementary students! We are almost halfway to our goal now! We still need to raise $1,354.37 to meet our goal. Math-a-thon ends on November 7th so search out an elementary student in the next two weeks to donate money to help find a cure for childhood cancer. If you have any questions, please contact the school office. Thanks for your participation in this year’s Math-a-thon.
