MRS. B’S BIRTHDAY WEEK
Coins for Cancer & Theme Days!
Monday, March 26 ~ Friday, March 30
Mrs. B’s birthday is March 25. In celebration of her life we will again be sponsoring a “Coins for Cancer” week and also adding theme days to the week!
During the week of March 26-30 we will again be collecting coins for the Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund, a fund that was created to honor Jackie and help other families battling cancer. Last year we raised over $2,000 in one week! Coins can be sent in to your child’s classroom teacher. This isn’t a classroom competition, although there’s always bragging rights, this is more to raise funds for an AMAZING local cause and hopefully meet or beat last year’s total.
Jackie was always one to celebrate birthdays and always quick with ideas for theme days and school spirit events. So, new this year we will be adding theme days as well as a popcorn day and ice cream day.
Here are the theme days for the week:
- MONDAY 3/26 >> Favorite Sport Day/Favorite Team Day
- TUESDAY 3/27 >> Camo/Hunting Day
- WEDNESDAY 3/28 >> Crazy Dress Day ~ Popcorn Day
- THURSDAY 3/29 >> Orange and Black Day
- FRIDAY** 3/30 >> By special request: Pajama Day & Orange Ice Cream
Hats can be worn if they match the theme or outfit, sandals too. Hats will need to be taken off during class time. For those that know Mr. Martinson, hats are a big deal and treat. 😉
** For Friday’s Ice Cream Day, we’ll gladly take donations of toppings, candy to mix, cones, etc. Donations can be dropped off in the office. As always, ice cream for our machine will be purchased with personal funds donated directly from staff. I am always up front and clear that we’ve never used building or district funds for the ice cream machine and the machine itself was donated to Mr. Martinson by the College of St. Scholastica.
In years past Cohasset had raised funds for Pennies for Patients. With the passing of Mrs. B. we have switched our focus to “Coins for Cancer”. All funds raised are donated, in Jackie’s honor, to the Itasca Area Cancer Crisis Fund. www.teambisch.org ~ www.gracf.org/grants-and-programs.html
