G.C. Hartman Elementary recently took part in the fundraising campaign, "Pasta for Pennies," to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Presented by Olive Garden, "Pasta for Pennies" is a service learning, character education, and philanthropy program that gives students a unique experience by making a difference through teamwork.  Elementary Principal John Fetterman offered a "sincere thank you" to all who contributed to this worthy cause. "Many thanks are extended to Guidance Counselor Eric Deeter, who spent much time organizing this event, and to our staff, our children and their families, for the strong effort they put forth in this campaign. The goal for the campaign was $2,000 and they almost doubled it!" G.C. Hartman's generous students and staff worked together and collected $3,664.88 to aid thousands of children and adults in the fight against blood cancers like leukemia. Shown in the photo below is Mrs. Sue Harder's Fourth Grade class who, as the top classroom, earned a pasta party lunch catered by Olive Garden. Congratulations Mrs. Harder and students! Thank you for a job well done!
