A few weeks ago, a group of 6th graders came to me with a proposal to raise money for pediatric cancer research. These 6th graders were greatly impacted by childhood cancer when their friend, James, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2nd grade. In honor of James, these caring warriors have taken on a project where they are raising money for cancer research. In addition to that, they are working with our 7th grade Research and Debate classes on a persuasive writing unit to lobby the government to allocate more funding toward pediatric cancer. Our students chose Alex’s Lemonade Stand https://www.alexslemonade.org/ as the receiving charity since this organization supports childhood cancer research directly.


Our students designed t-shirts and are selling them online through the below link:


JL Pediatric Cancer Research Fundraiser


If you would like a t-shirt, you can purchase it through this link and it will be shipped to your house directly. Shirts are $19.99 plus $5 for shipping. All proceeds will go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand on behalf of James’s friends. The store will be open until Sunday, November 21, 2021. Once the store closes, they will need a few weeks to process the order, so they should arrive at your home by mid-December, but in time for the holidays.


I am very proud of James’s friends for taking this initiative, and we truly appreciate your support!
