In a few short weeks students here at DES will be participating in the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge. Organized for the fourth consecutive year by cycle two teacher Marie-Michele Fradet, twelve brave students have come forward to raise money for this worthy cause.
As well, to encourage the class to participate, I will be placing a small piggy-bank on my desk to which students can contribute small change in support of the effort.
As some of you may know, Sam is my son. As a parent I had reservations about letting him participate, namely the fear that he would burn his little coconut outside this summer. Last night I ruffled his head and said how I was going to miss those curls.
He looked at me with the kind of withering look twelve-year-olds are so good at and responded, "Mom, some parents miss a lot more than that."
Well said. Congratulations to the participants on their selfless gesture, and good luck with the fundraising.
