According to a post on the Antioch Unified School District’s Facebook page on Tuesday, April 5, “Students at Marsh Elementary once again participated in the Pennies for Patients Fundraising Program organized by teacher, Michelle Reece. The program is designed to help students better understand how they can help others in the fight against Leukemia and other blood cancers.

According to Principal Crystal Berry, ‘By participating, our students have learned the importance of being caring citizens and how much of an impact they can make on others in our world. They’ve also learned the power of leadership, teamwork, philanthropy, and what doing for others truly means.’

This year alone, Marsh students exceeded their goal of raising $1,500.00! Way to go Marsh Tigers!”
