Gwynedd-Mercy Elementary School students form living breast cancer ribbon for sick teacher
LOWER GWYNEDD TWP (WTXF) - Students at Gwynedd-Mercy Academy Elementary formed a Living Breast Cancer Ribbon in honor of a longtime 5 th grade teacher.
According to a press release, in conjunction with the school's annual Breast Cancer Dress Down Day, all students and teachers formed a living pink ribbon in the parking lot of the school. The event was put on in honor of one of their 5 th grade teachers who is on medical leave.
Funds raised from the $1.00 per student or teacher Dress Down Day will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
The 8 th grade honors algebra class designed the structure of the ribbon, determining the average size of a kindergarten, 4 th grade, and 8 th grade student and factored in how many students were in each grade.
