North Jr. High Service Learning Project to Benefit Chemo Buddies



Friday, Feb. 14

8 – 8:30 a.m.; 11:40 a.m. – 12: p.m.; and 1:10 – 1:50 p.m.

North Junior High School, 15325 Highway 41 N.


Cancer is definitely a scary thing to face, but students at North Junior High School are teaming up with Chemo Buddies to make it a little easier.


On Friday, Chemo Buddies volunteer Mike Russ will speak to students about the organization and introduce the school’s new service learning project. As part of the project, students will work in math classes to create sun catchers that they will then give to patients undergoing treatment for cancer.


According to teacher Andrea Esparza, the project not only gives students the opportunity to learn about mathematical slope of line and equation writing, but they can also learn what it means to “pay it forward.”


To help with the project, students are collecting money and donations of Plexiglas and paint.
