Two of my 6th graders, Tatum and Tyler B., were drawn in a raffle to cut off my ponytails today. The kids had been collecting tickets for this raffle since Sept., so they were pretty excited about it. I asked them to cut off 8 inches, but they ended up cutting TEN INCHES off on each side! My hair was thick enough to get two big ponytails from, so I'll be sending in 20 inches of hair total.
Danae Domenichini, who I work with, also let two students (Aimee and Taylore) cut 28 inches off her hair!!! Another student of mine, Kylee, had cut her hair a while ago and brought me a 10-inch ponytail, so all-together we're going to donate 58 inches of hair to be made into a wig for someone who has lost her hair due to cancer treatment.
WHAT A FUN DAY!!!
