NP3 Teachers Raise Money for Cancer Research

NP3 High teachers Erik Jones and Robert Hagarty held a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

The event ran from Feb.17 to March 5. Jones and Hagarty had four different collection containers for all four grades at the high school in both of their classrooms.

The freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes competed to “out donate” each other as part of the fundraiser.

The winning class was to dye the teachers’ hair their class color and earn pirate points toward the yearlong grade-level competition.

The donations collected during this event were given to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation which is a charity that supports research for childhood cancer. People who raise money for St. Baldrick’s typically shave off their hair as part of fundraising.

Following the event and hair coloring, both teachers had planned to shave their hair off as they have done on every year.

The junior class won the competition, followed by seniors, freshmen and sophomores. The event raised $136.92 in total.

Jones and Hagarty dyed their hair a variation of red on March 9. After the teachers hair was dyed, they shaved it off.

The pirate points will not be awarded to the winning class and the grade-level competition has ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
