The staff and community of Camarena are eager to support causes worthy of our time, talent, and treasure. The Make-A-Wish Foundation Project, inspired by our 2nd graders, is one good example. Recently, I was approached by Aimee, a 6th grader who would like us to support another cause. Here is her appeal to the Camarena community.
Hello Camarena staff, students, and parents! We would like to inform you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we are asking all students to wear pink on Monday, October 20, 2014. Students can wear anything pink. Pink shoes, bracelets, shirts, and more! The reason we are wearing pink is because the staff will be taking pictures of students wearing pink . We will be sending pictures to women in the hospital with breast cancer, so they know that we support them. Thank you all very much, and we hope to see all students wearing pink on Monday, October 20.
Thanks Aimee, for the inspiration to show our support for those who are suffering with breast cancer. I’m sure the Camarena community will get behind this effort to make a tangible display of our unity for those in need.
