  • As for the results of the Pennies for Patients fundraiser itself, Ms. Kia and the kids at Check-in are in the process of counting up all those coins — and will have the results later this week.  TA teachers who have not yet returned their fundraising collection boxes are asked to please bring them to Check-in TODAY after school in the cafeteria.  Every penny counts!
