Student-Run Activities

A group of 8th-grade students are organizing a community-wide St. Baldrick’s event on March 14. Support the fundraiser by donating, or sign up to shave your head or cut your hair to donate it (30 cm minimum) to people battling cancer (deadline to sign up March 3). The funds raised will support cancer research and treatments at Princess Maxima Center for Childhood Cancer in The Hague. The event has raised €4,854 so far, which means Mr. Richards will shave his head. If we reach €5,000 in donations, Mr. Davison will shave his head, and Mr. Mattson will do it if donations reach €6,000. Please consider joining the event and/or donating to the cause.
