Support for Mrs. Bledsoe

pink ribbonMany of you already know that our own Mrs. Bledsoe has been battling breast cancer this year. She is scheduled for surgery next week. The PTA is sponsoring several fundraisers to help cover her medical expenses. This Thursday (3/26) from 3pm – 9pm there is a fundraiser at the Five Guys Burgers located on Congress Avenue. Be sure to tell them that you are with Poinciana.

The PTA is also creating a Links of Love paper chain throughout the school. A PINK flyer went home before spring break with a blank paper chain to share your message with Mrs. Bledsoe and her family. If you would like to contribute, please send in your donation with the Links of Love sheet (available online at www.poincianapta.com).  Please return the ENTIRE sheet if you would like to participate.  Did you know you can make a contribution online with your credit card?

The dress code will be waived this Friday (3/27). Everyone is being asked to wear pink and make a one dollar donation that will also benefit Mrs. Bledsoe.
