Each year the Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) has a fund-raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This year our three campuses sent $5037.39 to help find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

Since 1954, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has awarded more than $875 million in research grants. Thanks in part to innovative research funded by LLS and the fund-raising efforts of donors like “Pasta for Pennies” schools, survival rates have doubled.

We would like to thank all the staff and students for working so hard for this worthy cause.

The elementary campus raised more than $3,000 and was given a trip to Olive Garden. Mrs. Stevens’ kindergarten class boarded the bus and traveled to Olive Garden, where they were treated as royalty! They received a tour of the kitchen, a three-course meal, and all the attention you could possibly want. The head chef, manager, and waiter were there to give the little ones a day to remember! To quote one student, “This is the best day ever!”

Stockdale students from the junior high school and the high school enjoyed a meal from Olive Garden, after a fund-raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Olive Garden sent spaghetti, salad, breadsticks, and all the trimmings for our winning classes as a “thank you” for donating the most money.

We ran contests during a three-week period to see which class on each campus could raise the most money.

The following is a list of winning classes.

•Elementary campus -- Mrs. Stevens’ kindergarten class, first place; Ms. Rhea Rutland’s second-grade class, second; and Ms. Beverly Hummel’s kindergarten class, third.

•Junior high campus --Ms. Golla’s class, first place; Mrs. Coston’s class, second; and Mrs. West’s class, third.

•High school campus --Mrs. Darilek’s class, first place; Mrs. Marrou’s class, second; and Mr. Bennett’s class, third.
