Solving Problems through Creative Exploration
Saving Fred the Worm
Dear Parents, April 26, 2016
The Wellsville Elementary School has begun its 2016 Math-A-Thon to benefit St. Jude Children's Research
Hospital. Math-A-Thon, now in its 37th year, is an educationally based fund-raising program in which students obtain sponsors for the number of math problems completed in special workbooks or online provided for students in grades Pre-K through 5.
The students who volunteer to participate in the program learn to do more than just math problems; they also learn the importance of helping children who are less fortunate than themselves. Through the Math-A-Thon, they are able to help provide a future for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Children with more than 200 forms of cancer and other catastrophic diseases find hope at St. Jude. Since its founding in 1952 by the late entertainer, Danny Thomas, the survival rates for most forms of pediatric cancer have risen dramatically. In fact, today more than 70% of all children with cancer will survive their bout with the disease. St. Jude fully credits these successes in treatment to the generous support of people around the world, including the students at Wellsville Elementary School.
With our help, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will be able to create new treatments that may one day lead to a cure for many forms of cancer that will benefit the children of our state, our country, and around the world. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children with cancer!
Here are the important dates for our Math-A-Thon:
