Mini-Relay for Life

Instead of a "Field Day" at the end of the school year, Connor's school is now participating in a mini-relay for life. Every year they have a theme and each grade sets up a booth for the other children to visit. They have three rotations where they work, play and walk. They sale luminaries to raise money. This year the elementary raised $7,000.00! What a great learning experience for these kids! I love that the school is doing this! Everyone somehow, someway has been affected by cancer.

Great pictures and you are so right, we are all affected by cancer. Good job by Connor's school to do this!
How is summer going? Oh, wait, they are still in school?????

What a neat idea! I will have to keep that in mind. It is a great lesson for the children and a lot of FUN!

I can't wait to see you guys in a few weeks. The boys are excited about our trip together!!

Seriously...that is one of the COOLEST things I have ever seen. If I was still teaching I would TOTALLY be copying that whole idea for our school. What a wonderful way to teach children that we must all care for eachother!!!
