Roland Rogers is hosting this event for the fifth straight year! Shavees, students, and staff are raising money to help conquer kids’ cancer!The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Get involved and you’ll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. Last year alone, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation raised over $38 million worldwide! Our school goal this year is $12,000.
We are accepting donations in your child’s classroom. For every $5 a student donates, they will have a “Lucky Charm” placed in the hallway with their name on it. A random drawing will be held on March 20 and parties will be awarded to those winning students’ homerooms.
Donations of any size are greatly appreciated. Cash and checks made out to “St. Baldrick’s Foundation” will be accepted in the classroom. You can also donate online using the following link: http://www.stbaldricks.org/events/roland
If we reach our goal, Dr. Moore and Mrs. Gruber will do something crazy!!!
Thanks in advance for your help in supporting this worthwhile cause!!!

Lucy is a micro Yorkshire Terrier. Standing 5.7 inches tall, and weighing in at a whopping 3 pounds, Lucy can fit comfortably in your hands. But don’t let her diminutive size fool you — this dog has tons of personality! She is certified by the Guinness World Book of Records s the smallest working dog. Lucy was the guest of Mrs. Farquharson and Mr. Bartolone. She and her trainer, Sally Leone Montufar, visited Mrs. Farquharson’s 4th Grade classroom on Friday, December 5th. Sally trained Lucy to be a therapy dog, and together they visit schools, hospitals, and hospices. Lucy can even do the “Stop, drop and roll” when teaching about fire prevention! And to top it off, Lucy was awarded the Hero Dog citation from the New Jersey State Senate for her acts of kindness!
Lucy has also been seen on Live with Kelly, Super Tiny Animals, Nat Geo Wild and other documentaries.

Here’s a tv news report on Lucy from NBC.
