ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Students at Mother Teresa Regional School did more than paint the town pink they brought in the green.  Last week, the students raised over $3,500 for the Paint the Town Pink event, Make Some Noise Foundation, and the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

The student council held a dress down day where students wore pink to raise awareness about breast cancer. Students also painted the school pink by decorating their doors, writing essays, and creating poems.  The pink posse from the four year old preschool program helped decorate the front windows of the school.

Friday night, the school turned out to Make Some Noise and raise money for the named foundation which supports pediatric cancer research.  Students learned from three survivors or Ewing Sarcoma, that only 1% of federal dollars spent on cancer research goes to pediatric cancer research.  The karaoke night, dress down day, and bake sale raised over $1,600.

Artists were in abundance at the school on Saturday, as the school hosted Draw 4 a Cure to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Students and families volunteered to help with face painting, being clowns, serving food, and displaying art. Local artists displayed their talent and offered portraits with money being donated back.  The event, a first for MTRS, was a huge success thanks to the school’s art teacher, Ms. Connie Jamele.
