Bright Cases, Smiling Faces at MJHS

Memorial Junior High School students joined forces to support children with cancer and bring them joy during their hospital stays. The Clothing and Fashion class, World of Differences club and SADD club all worked under the direction of teacher/advisor Coreen Johnson to create pillowcases for Case for Smiles.

Case for Smiles is an organization whose goal is to brighten the lives of children with cancer and break up the boredom of a hospital stay by giving them a bright pillowcase and a chance to learn how to sew their own pillowcases.

The pillowcase initiative at Memorial Junior High School began last May, and efforts continued into the current school year. The Clothing and Fashion students took on the tasks of cutting, sewing and making patterns. They collaborated with one another and applied their math skills to precisely measure and align the fabric, which was generously funded by the Eagles Club parent group.

Students involved in the World of Differences and SADD clubs also participated in creating the pillowcases and additionally volunteered their time to wash and iron the finished products. “I had fun making the patterns,” said ninth-grade student Vivicca Carreras. “It feels good to make a difference for someone.”

The pillowcases were completed and ready to be distributed to their recipients on Sept. 17, when Memorial Junior High School also held a Pajama Day fundraiser to support the cause. Students and staff members came to school dressed in pajamas and donated $61 to help Case for Smiles purchase fabric for future pillowcases.

“It feels good to know that I helped,” said ninth-grader Khadija Zahid. “I know the effect that cancer can have on a family, and this way, [children] can feel happy in the hospital and have something bright and colorful while away from home.”

“They are learning to be selfless and give to others,” Ms. Johnson said of her students. “There is a lot of work involved in creating something from start to finish and then giving it away to bring a smile to someone else.”

A message from Mr. Mignella

 

Dear Parent/Guardian,
As you know Memorial provides a warm, caring, and supportive learning environment as well as a rigorous academic program for students in grades seven through nine. Another key ingredient in a successful junior high school is parental involvement. With that philosophy in mind, Memorial will be emailing a Parent Newsletter throughout the year. The attached PDF file contains the first parent newsletter for this year.
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me via email at [email protected]

Kind Regards,
