For 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Throughout April, Marion Elementary School is supporting the American Cancer Society. We are offering paper birthday cakes for a $1.00 donation in honor of a cancer survivor or in remembrance of a loved one. Each dollar gets us closer to a world with more birthdays. You may purchase as many cakes as you wish and all proceeds go to American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Your loved one's name and the student's name will be written on the cake and it will be placed in the halls of our school for all to see!
