What started out as a gesture of respect has turned into a bit more for Kasen Petrey, 3rd grader at FNE. Kasen loves law enforcement officers. In fact, for the last year, when Kasen sees officers, he asks for their autographs. He has pages and pages of autographs. Recently, though, Kasen has started giving the officers something to remember him by, too, a guardian angel keychain.
Did you know that every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer?
Every school day, 46 kids are diagnosed and 7 of those will die.
Floresville ISD is joining the fight to find a cure for childhood cancer, this September. We’re asking you to help raise awareness by participating in the “Gold Out” at the Tiger Football game on September 7th. For $10, you can buy a gold t-shirt with the “Step Up For Childhood Cancer” message. The proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go to St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a foundation that supports childhood cancer research. Let’s help, together. You can order a shirt between now and Friday, August 31st at 11am. Click the headline for the order form. The form and money should be returned to the front office of your child’s campus or, if you don’t have a child at FISD, it can be returned to the FISD Central Office, 1200 5th Street. You will be able to pick-up your shirt on Thursday, September 6th wherever you turned in your form.
