Before and After

Here are photos of the Sioux Trail staff who had their cut on Thursday afternoon.  The garbage bags kept some of the hair out, but not all of it!  The Sioux Trail students surrounding the staff were randomly drawn from the donations to do some of the hair cutting.    Sioux Trail was very fortunate to have lots of volunteers supervising our amateur barbers and you see a lot of orange because that is the awareness color for Leukemia.
Congratulations to the Sioux Trail community for a job very well done!

Chilly forecast for a bald head!

I checked the forecast and it supposed to be another cool day tomorrow!  I laid out a stocking cap to protect my bald head after the head shaving that I'm scheduled to have tomorrow afternoon at Sioux Trail.  I also found a website with tips for shaving your head!  Shave Your Head We're shaving heads tomorrow at 2:15 in the Sioux Trail gym and all are welcome.  Our very brace Jacie will get the event started and we've invited all of the local media.  I hope local media will help celebrate the dedication of our community to Pennies for Patients.

Time for a Haircut

On Friday, just before the deadline, the Sioux Trail Community raised over $2,000 for Pennies for Patients, a fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma treatment and research. 

Thank you to everyone who was an active part of this Sioux Trail fundraiser.  We had several incentives for students including a presentation from a Sioux Trail Kindergarten student who has battled Leukemia, a medallion hunt and an offer to shave the heads of some Sioux Trail staff members.  The original goal was set at $1500, but the offer was made - if we can exceed the goal by $500 we will shave the heads of five Sioux Trail staff members.  The goal was exceeded on Friday and the haircuts are on Thursday (02.10) afternoon in the Sioux Trail gym.

Pennies for Patients has been a Sioux Trail tradition for many years and this year we raised more money that we have ever raised and had incredible participation.  Congratulations to all members of the Sioux Trail community for supporting this wonderful cause.
