2016 HMS Blood Drive
The 7th Grade science classes held their annual Blood Drive on Thursday, March 10th. They collected 78 usable pints of blood. Each pint of blood can influence the lives of three people, so their work impacted 234 people. Our students also brought in a number of new donors, which is extremely helpful and important to this cause.
In addition to running the drive the students' informative projects demonstrated all that they've learned about blood, blood typing, blood disorders and the genetics of blood. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback about our students' professionalism as the ran the drive. Those who attended observed the essential value of service learning!
Congratulations to the 7th Grade Students and Team! Our thanks to Morgan Cuthbert, Jay Harrington and Janice Medenica for creating this important learning experience for our school and community.
