Patriot Glory (L. Cass; 11/14- 12/07)

The annual campus Believe Campaign is back!

Every year Macy’s hosts a Believe Campaign, meaning, for every Santa letter collected, they donate $1.00 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®.

Independence is collecting letters to turn in on National Believe, when each Santa letter is worth $2.00!

Students can turn in letters to any teacher until December 7th; teachers have boxes in their classes wrapped in holiday paper. There are also collection boxes in the offices, Media Center and the PACE Lab.

The teacher who collects the most letters wins a prize!

Letters can be as simple as, “Dear Santa, You are amazing! May I, please, have a new bike for Christmas?”

Independence collected 30,650 letters as a campus last year!

Let’s come together, again, Patriot Family, and make a difference for a charity that grants “the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”

Jr. Andrew Perez added the second goal of the night with a successful penalty kick. The Patriots put in a great team effort the rest of the game to preserve the win.
