Going Pink For A Cure: Recognizing Cancer Survivors, T-Shirt Orders Due

A note from Andrea Kaplan, South Milwaukee High School associate principal … she can be reached at akaplan@sdsm.k12.wi.us.

On October 21st the School District of South Milwaukee will Go Pink to support Justice for a Cure.  In celebration of this great cause the Middle School will raise funds and host the Pink Day Assembly.  I am excited to have this opportunity at the middle school and look forward to working with many groups throughout the district to make this event memorable.

This year there will be a portion of the assembly dedicated to celebrating breast cancer survivors within our community or who have a tie to our community.  It is important to show our students the reality and impact that breast cancer has on not only ourselves but on our community.  

If you are a survivor or you know a survivor who lives or has ties to the South Milwaukee community I would like to personally invite you or them to be a guest at our assembly.  Our special guests will not have a speaking part but will have a spotlight moment.  

Please feel free to forward this information to parents, family members, friends or anyone you know that would be willing to be a guest for this amazing celebration.

RSVP to Ms. Kaplan for more information.
