Pennies for Pasta

Our Minisink Valley Middle School's fundraising efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society put us at number two in the top ten fundraising schools in the Westchester/Hudson Valley region. More than 140 schools and over 92,000 students raised over $155,000. Barbara Gallagher, Campaign Manager, for the society came to our school on Friday, June 19th to present us with a plaque in recognition of our great work. On hand to receive the plaque was our principal Michael Giardina, two of our fundraiser organizers; Student Assistant Counselor, Regine Fontaine and Student Government Advisor, Jen Pagnanella. Also present was 7th grade student David Shapiro. David donated the largest sum of money in memory of his grandmother.
