Secondary Schools

Dear Parents:
Emily Brittain School is getting ready to hold its annual “HOP for
Leukemia.” Over the past 13 years, Emily Brittain has donated more than
$90,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)! The LLS is the
world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to the funding of cutting
edge treatments for blood cancers. This year, your child has the opportunity
to assist our K-4 students with their “HOP.”
From March 9th-20th, students in the Secondary Schools will have the
opportunity to purchase a “HOP” card. “HOP” cards will be available during
lunch for $1.00 per card. The student’s name will be added to the card and
then displayed within the school.
This year’s “HOP” Hometown Hero is Kolton Trump. Kolton is a brave
teenager who was recently diagnosed with and undergoing treatment for
Leukemia. He began his education in my Kindergarten classroom and is
presently an eighth-grader at the Butler Area Junior High School. His family
and friends are thrilled to have their loved-one as our Hometown Hero and
look forward to actively supporting our efforts.
The money raised in honor of Kolton will help fund the Society’s programs
of Patient Aid, Research and Education. Last year’s donation of $11,000.00
was outstanding! We look forward to having another highly successful
“HOP” by also seeking the support of the Butler Area’s Secondary Schools
and local businesses.
Leukemia is the #1 disease killer of children. Let us get our healthy children
involved by assisting those in finding a cure for this deadly disease. Please
Thank you in advance for your support!
