Grade 3 Students Beaming with Pride
Grade 3 students were beaming with pride during the check presentation ceremony of funds raised at their annual Blood Drive and Bake Sale. The students reflected upon the experience by sharing a personal message to our special guests from the San Diego Blood Bank.
“I learned that giving blood helps millions of people in the hospital.” -Lucian
“I hope everyone that got the blood feels better soon and I thank everyone that donated blood or brought something to the bake sale.” – Cooper
“I will never forget how Third Grade did a Blood Drive and Bake Sale that saved people’s lives. Gillispie School is one of the few schools who did a drive and I’ve very proud of my Third Grade class.” – Isabelle
This year, the Grade 3 Blood Drive and Bake Sale collected 43 pints of blood from donors ranging from parents, grandparents, teachers, and community members and raised $2,947.82 in donations for the San Diego Blood Bank!
