6th graders participating in Relay for Life and raising money for the American Cancer Society.
On Friday, April 26th, Our 6th graders will be participating in Relay for Life. Relay for Life is an event in which we celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has taken too much. This year the Sherwood 6th grade team has a goal to raise $10,000 for the American Cancer Society and they are asking for your support. There are many ways your can support the Sherwood 6th graders.
