Pennies for Patients Fundraiser

Pennies for Patients Fundraiser

The fundraiser will start on February 5th and end on February 23rd.  Each class will receive a collection box for their classroom.  The classroom that raises the most money will earn a pizza party.  Last year, Dilley Elementary raised a total of           1, 691.74.  Dilley High School has been challenged to raise more money than the Elementary.  Let’s see if we cannot only beat our total from last year, but raise more money than the High School.  To further add to the excitement, Mrs. Carrion and Mr. Martinez are being challenged to raise money for our Pennies for Patients fundraiser.  The one who raises the least amount of money will have to spray paint their hair a neon color and wear it all day to school on Friday, February 23rd.  The buckets for Mrs. Carrion and Mr. Martinez will be located in the school office.  Please donate to this great cause.  Remember, those pennies really do add up!
