Kennedy Middle School celebrated its first Pink Out Day on Oct. 30. During Pink Out Day, students and staff each paid $1 to wear a pink shirt and jeans for the day. All money raised was donated to breast cancer research. Kennedy staff and students raised $113!
The event was the brainchild of our principal, Treveda Redmond. Ms. Redmond is a six-year cancer survivor. Additionally, my grandmother Eileen Elliott was a two-time breast cancer survivor. She was a long time RPS 205 employee serving as a secretary in elementary schools and then in the superintendent's office.
Not only were students excited to be out of uniform for the day, but they were thrilled to help raise awareness for this disease that affects their community.
