Tale of the tape: Bristol cancer fundraiser

       Bristol Elementary's Student Council led a fundraiser in April to fight cancer for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
       According to teacher Deb Louis, sponsor of Bristol's Student Council, “Students were given many different opportunities to donate. The highlight was when kids had the opportunity of duct-taping their principal, Steve Ferguson, to a chair for $1 per piece of tape.”
       Whittier Elementary will have a fundraising event called “Chocolate with Art” Thursday, May 8 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the school gym.
       Activities will include student art displays, sales of chocolate and a silent auction of donated items.
       The school is at 2904 W. Kiowa St.
       All proceeds will go into a special art fund, explained teacher/organizer Laurie Sanchez.
