$2676.23

is how much my 6th graders raised this year for Alex's Lemonade Stand which funds research for childhood cancers. Through the course of this school year, we have sold candy, lemonade, paid for the privilege to dress down (preferably in yellow), and today presented a big ol' check to one of the great people that work at the foundation. It has been a great day and a great year.

All in all, this has been the most successful year of my teaching career. Today was just icing on the cake.

Thank you thank you thank you from a cancer survivor. Sell the hell out of that lemonade Mitchell. Spike it for the parents if you have to. You know the drill. BB
