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.
