J.G. Whittier Middle School


    Many of our male staff members have decided to stop shaving to raise money for cancer and cancer research. This is our 4th year of doing this. Over the first 3 years, we have raised $1,080. This year we are asking for the students help!

    We are currently having a “Penny War.” Each staff member that is participating has a 1 gallon jug with their face on it. We are asking students to bring in donations which only consist of spare change to put in the jug of the staff member they’d like to see “win.”

    For every penny donated, it will be worth 1 point for that particular staff member. If nickels, dimes, or quarters are donated, they should be put in the jugs of staff members that students do not want to win because they are worth -5, -10, and -25 points respectively.

    At the end of the month, the staff member with the most points….not necessarily the most money will win! What will they win you ask…Well, it’s really the students who will win because this particular staff member will have to do something embarrassing in front of the entire student body. Stay tuned for what that may be!

    The most important thing is that at the end of the month, all of the money raised will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society to benefit cancer research. This is something that has affected all of our lives in some way. Now it is time that we do our part to raise money to help out while having a little fun doing it.

    Please search those couch cushions and car seats and bring in your spare change to fill our jugs at lunch time each day! Thanks for all of your help!

    Here is our “Before” picture. Please stay tuned for the “After” picture…
