We are very proud to again support Ellie's Hats and raise awareness of childhood cancer next week, September 24th - 28th. We will be collecting new hats of all varieties for children in donation bins at the main entrances of the school. Next Friday, during our "Going Gold Day", Jay Coakley, local resident in South Riding and Founder of Ellie's Hats, will receive all of the hats donated from Liberty students and staff to provide to incredible children battling cancer.
Ellie’s Hats donates hats to children battling cancer and much more. In the spring of 2013 a little girl named Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. By the time she started kindergarten in the fall, she had lost most of her hair and was wearing hats to school every day. Ellie’s Hats was born after one of her teachers noticed how much cheer and individuality the hats brought to Ellie. He wanted to share that feeling with other children who suffered from childhood cancer and to also raise awareness. Please watch this video here to see the impact Ellie's Hats is having on our community.
Next Friday, September 28th, we encourage all our students to wear gold as Liberty is "Going Gold"to raise awareness of childhood cancer. Please look this weekend to see if your student has a gold, or yellow, shirt to wear to school.
