Bulletin Board Raises Breast Cancer Awareness

Students in Allyson Kretz’s seventh-grade ELA class put together an informative project aimed at raising awareness in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The students took part in two days of classroom discussions based on their research of the disease, which they had conducted using the Internet and magazine articles. They also shared stories of loved ones who had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Looking to turn the lessons outward to raise awareness for fellow middle school students, the class took over a bulletin board, decorating it with the slogan “Think Pink” and fixing charts and information to it.
