BMS flag design, guitar winner

Second-graders combat cancer
Moreland Hills Elementary School second-grade students ran their annual “Alex’s Lemonade Stand” to combat pediatric cancer. The students not only got a great lesson in running a business, they also learned about combining flexibility, philanthropy and fun. The students were responsible for all aspects of this service learning project which benefits pediatric cancer causes, especially research into new treatments and cures. In the three-day sale in mid-May, MHS students raised nearly $900 hosting the stand during school lunch periods. They advertised their efforts, wrote and made PA announcements and ran the stand, which also included a raffle. They also ran a lemon toss game where students could win a free T-shirt. MHS has participated in this philanthropy for more than a decade, providing more than $10,000 over the years to this important cause.
This week’s Pride Powers recipients at Moreland Hills Elementary School are Maggie Sprinkle’s kindergarten class, Angela Sarris’ kindergarten class, Kim DePaula’s third-grade class and Sue Hogan’s third-grade class. Each week Moreland Hills Elementary School chooses four classrooms as Pride Powers recipients. These classrooms will receive a traveling trophy for exhibiting their Pride Powers: be safe, be respectful, be responsible and be engaged.
