Seventh-Grade Math-A-Thon Goal Exceeded!

These students acquired sponsors and completed 5 pages of math questions, which were supplied by St Jude’s. Some of Stimson’s faculty and staff also contributed to help exceed our goal and raise a total of $2,429.50.

This year, under the leadership of middle school teacher Mrs. Victoria Corcoran, seventh grade Stimson students were invited to participate in the St. Jude Math-a-thon.  This is a program that benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.  Unlike any other hospital, the majority of St Jude’s funding comes from individual contributions. And thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

All 7th graders were given an informational packet to bring home. If interested, they returned a permission slip (so participation was completely voluntary).  In total, 62 students agreed to participate. These students acquired sponsors and completed 5 pages of math questions which were supplied by St Jude’s. Some of Stimson’s faculty and staff also contributed. We exceeded our goal of $2,000 by raising a total of $2,429.50.  Great job Stimson!
