Joaquin Elementary participates in "Pasta for Pennies"

Joaquin Elementary Students participated in the PASTA FOR PENNIES program with the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society again this year. The dates were March 19, 2018-April 6, 2018.  LLS helps to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.  Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer.  Every 9 minutes someones loses that battle.  Blood cancers can affect any age, from babies to the elderly.

Joaquin Elementary Students collected a total of $2730.04.  

Ms. Dee Dee Derbonne's 2nd grade was the top collecting class with a total of

$1,117.14.  They will be rewarded a trip to Olive Garden with salad, pasta & breadsticks for lunch.

Joaquin ISD appreciates all of our students and those who donated for a great job well done
