Dear PS 101 Families:
I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to our students, parents and staff for the overwhelming contributions towards the 2018 Pennies for Patients Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We proudly surpassed our goal and last year’s grand total by several hundred dollars and have educated our students to be leaders in the quest to help others in need.
We have collected a grand total of $4,246.42. Over the years in participating in this important cause and organization, this brings our total to over 20,000 to help children suffering from leukemia and lymphoma. Special thanks to the many PS 101 staff members who have led these efforts over the years: Ms. Baio, Ms. Careaga, Ms. Perrina, Ms. Lloyd, Ms. Bova and Ms. Nessas. Additionally, kudos and much gratitude to the brave staff who were pied and taped to the wall for a good laugh and worthy cause to raise money and we did!
Your steadfast work and caring hearts to join together in order to raise money for sick children, help support treatment and a cure speaks volumes. Please know you have made a difference and there are not enough words to say thank you.
Our P.S. 101 family and the community I am privileged to serve is truly amazing!
Gregg Korrol, Principal
