Yesterday’s annual blood drive for the San Diego Blood Bank was a huge success:

–We collected 37 pints of blood,
–The bake sale raised $2,638.18 for the Blood Bank based on the generous food donations by all third-grade families, Come on In, The French Gourmet, Michele Coulon, and Pizza Pronto, and
–Nathan L. won the cake raffle.

A special thank you to the Grade 3 teachers for organizing the event, and to all the parents, faculty, and staff who made the day possible.

Below, Grade 5 teacher Mrs. Long relaxes in the post-donation rest area with Preschool Room 3 teacher Ms. Thompson. Also, Grade 3 boys Chase M., Orion B., and Ethan K. do their part to advertise the bake sale to the community.
