Banneker School Off To Active Start

Banneker Raises Money For Great Cause

On Friday, September 26th Banneker hosted its first ever Hats Off for Cancer fundraiser. This organization provides hats, which have been signed by celebrities and athletes, to children who are battling cancer. Their goal is to “improve the quality of life for the courageous children and teens who are battling and have battled cancer.”

Banneker students and staff joined in their cause by having a “jeans and caps day.” Students who donated $1 were able to choose to wear jeans or their favorite hat. Students who donated at least $2 were able to wear both. The classrooms were also challenged to see who could raise the most money. If the school raised $700 or more, Banneker Principal Dr. Kilgore also volunteered to have the top fund raising students dye her hair in a school wide assembly.

There were two classrooms whose total donations were close to $100; Mrs. Smith’s and Mrs. Norman’s classrooms. In total, the students and staff raised $1,305.62 for this great cause. Not only did Dr. Kilgore volunteer to have students dye her hair, so did Mrs. Norman, Ms. Burtelle, Ms. Jester and Ms. Shockley. Nine of the top fundraising students, who each donated at least $10, dyed the volunteers’ hair in a school wide assembly. To learn more about the Hats Off for Cancer.

On Friday, September 26th WJBR named Mrs. Jennifer Norman September’s Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Norman teaches second grade at Benjamin Banneker and was surprised during a school-wide assembly with the award. Mrs. Norman was nominated by Patricia Norvell . “Jennifer is one of the first teachers to arrive at school in the morning and one of the last teachers to leave,” stated Mrs. Norvell. “She is patient, loving, and cares deeply about all the children. Jennifer will do whatever she can to help a child. She takes work home with her and even works a lot of weekends grading papers, planning, making phone calls, writing emails etc. Jennifer uses her own money to buy things for her class. She is truly dedicated and goes above and beyond not only for her students, but for her fellow teachers.” Mrs. Norman was given a plaque from WBJR and was recognized by DSEA (Delaware State Education Association) with brunch for four at Deefield.
