Save the Date! Hero Squad is coming!

Families, our school has teamed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Hero Squad starting on March 22nd to teach our students about kindness, bravery, and how working together for one common goal will help both children and adults in their fight against cancer.  
 
The money we raise will help blood cancer patients in our community by funding research, providing free information, financial and support services, and advocates for blood cancer patients by seeking access to quality, affordable, coordinated care.  Specifically, LLS is leading a collaboration to launch a global precision medicine clinical trial to fundamentally change how pediatric cancers are treated.  
 
Our school will qualify for school rewards based on the amount we raise.  Our rewards will help with materials and items that will help throughout the school year and students will receive Hero Gear thank-you gifts based on the donations they collect. 
 
Be on the lookout for items sent home with your student this week (items also attached). Visit https://events.lls.org/pages/ntx/Linda-Jobe-Middle-School-Mansfield-2021 and join your classroom team to get started raising money online!  In order to help develop goal-setting, self-motivation, and organizational skills, your student(s) will earn fun Hero Gear at various fundraising levels. 
 
PLUS! Put the FUN in online fundraising with our NEW Hero Squad app! Available on both iOS and Android devices, the app allows you to share your fundraising page, track donations, unlock prizes and view things in augmented reality, all while helping create a world without blood cancer! Check out the Hero Squad App Flyer for more information on the app and how to download it today! 
 
Thank you families for your support of our Hero Squad and be on the lookout for more information soon!  Every hero needs a squad!
