Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Carrollwood Day School is joining the fight to help defeat this illness. This year Paint The Campus Pink will be honoring Trudi Buscemi, CDS Elementary and Middle School Principal, as she reaches her 10th year surviving breast cancer.
On Friday, October 12, 2012, students from the toddlers to the seniors in high school will be “painting” the CDS campuses pink with flowers, ribbons and other decorations that will beautify the campuses throughout the month of October. An important component of the CDS International Baccalaureate program is Community and Service, and CDS will participate in “Paint the Campus Pink”, a school-wide service project to raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
In addition to planting flowers and decorating CDS campuses, students will be participating in a “walk on the track” at 2:30, Friday, October 12th, to show unity and commitment towards raising awareness and support of the struggles that come with cancer. Students have organized various fundraisers to support this event. Third graders are selling frozen lemonade and the middle school students are selling snacks. CDS is also encouraging the children to save their own money to donate so they gain an understanding that they can help make a difference.
Tuesday, October 9th high school students will take a bus to the Early Childhood Campus to assist the younger students with planting pink flowers.
