Pennies...for Pasta. Support the JSAMS Builders Club raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. January 10 through January 31, 2018. The Teacher Contact Group earning the most money to support finding a cure are treated to a free lunch supplied by the Olive Gardens restaurant. Here's how the fund raiser works: January 10 the students will attend an assembly explaining what Leukemia and Lymphona are and the research involved in finding a cure. Every day students are asked to contribute change until the last day of January. On January 31st, there will be a wrap-up assembly to tell the students how much they earned and will be contributed to the society. The winning class will be announced at the assembly. We sincerely hope you are able to help you son or daughter bring in pennies for pasta. We extend our gratitude to Olive Gardens for their generous give to the students for this fund raiser.
