Rally Week at Vaughan!
Join us this week as Vaughan Elementary partners
with Rally Foundation to RALLY for childhood cancer research!
Vaughan will host our 7th RALLY 4 Quarters 4 Research (4Q4R)
fundraiser which encourages kids to help other kids. Since 2010,
Vaughan has organized this annual Rally Week and raised more
than $60,000 for childhood cancer research which is an
This week of community service events will be done in memory of
former Vaughan students Alexa and Tyler and in
honor of Rally Kids Catherine, Kayla, Mary, Christopher and Leigh. Catherine is
currently at Vaughan in 3rd grade and Kayla, Mary, Christopher
and Leigh are all former students of Vaughan that have fought
childhood cancer and are survivors.
By collecting loose change (and other denominations of money
including checks made out to Rally Foundation) for the classroom
competition and hosting a student-wide variety show, Rally 4Q4R
week at Vaughan offers a platform for the community to save
lives by helping raise funds for childhood cancer research.
Please join the RALLY this week by making a donation,
volunteering to help, and attending our two Benefit Variety
Shows on Thursday 1/28/16 and Friday 1/29/16, both starting at
6:30 pm. (There will be Chick-fil-A and pizza slices for sale
at both shows) Please review the list of volunteer opportunities
and bake sale donations needed and sign up to help if you can.
We have a NEW online link to a “Vaughan Rally
Page” this year where you can donate online with a debit or
credit card. Just make sure to include your child’s teacher’s
name in the comment sections so the donation will be counted
towards the classroom competition. If you do NOT include the
classroom teacher your online donation will not be able to go
towards a particular teacher. You can also see other information
about our Rally Week, including the daily total which will be
updated each evening. So stop by often and see how YOU can be a
part of making a difference in the life of a child with cancer!
