United Way Student Campaign October 27th-31st

Our school will be participating in the United Way campaign from October 27th-October 31st.  United Way is a local, non-profit organization that focuses on the issues that face our community. United Way donations make it possible to provide a local network of human care services. In fact, your United Way touches one out of every five people in South Hampton Roads.

During the week, students will be able to participate in activities to show their support of United Way, as well as, Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives with the ultimate goal being the creation of drug free America.

For each day of participation, students are asked to make a dollar donation. Money for the week’s activities will be collected on or before Monday, October 27th.

  • Monday, October 27—Wear Red (all students) & turn in money for the following days the student wants to participate
  • Tuesday, October 28— Crazy Hat Day
  • Wednesday, October 29— Cool Shades/Sunglasses Day—worn during non-instructional times
  • Thursday, October 30— Storybook Character Day—dress up like your favorite storybook character (no pretend weapons, masks, or frightening outfits)
  • Friday, October 31—Mismatch/Inside Out/Crazy Sock Day—wear clothes that do not match and/or inside out with your craziest socks

Please return the Donation Form at the bottom with the appropriate donation to your child’s teacher by Monday, October 27th. Donations can be made by cash or check. Check donations should be made payable to UWSHR (United Way of Southampton Roads).

We thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Pentecost & Mrs. Prine
