Hadfield Elementary School participates in "Pasta for Pennies."

The Student Council at Hadfield Elementary School organizes a coin drive for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Students at Hadfield Elementary School recently participated in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Pasta for Pennies" program.  The coin drive, organized by Hadfield's Student Council, raised $1028.70, which will be used to fund advocacy, research, and patient services for families affected by cancer.  Pictured above with student council members and students in the top fund-raising class are principal Grace Hess,  fourth grade teacher Karen Leis, and Student Council advisor Michele Gagner.
