The students and staff of G.C. Hartman Elementary Center recently completed a successful campaign to raise funds for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Pennies for Patients." Charged with a goal of raising $4,000, the G.C. Hartman school community was up to the challenge and raised an amazing $4195.94!  "This campaign is another great example of our children, their families and our staff pulling together to make a positive difference in the lives of others, " stated Principal Mr. John Fetterman. Last year, the school raised over $3,600 to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families.
 
Mrs. Kay Rodriguez's Kindergarten students raised the most funds for this campaign and will be rewarded with a pasta party from Olive Garden  The second place classroom, earning a pizza party, was Miss Amy Hornberger's 3rd Grade Class. The Third Grade students of Mrs. Shelly Hower were the third highest fundraising class and will be treated to an ice cream party.  G.C. Elementary Center will be presented with a special "Champions of Change" banner from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in recognition of raising over $4,000. Congratulations students and staff on your fine efforts and thank you for your support of this noble cause!
