McKinley & Washington Schools Taking Part in Relay Recess

Megan Deal and Abby Gilkerson for Relay Recess


PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Megan Deal-2nd Grade teacher at Washington Elementary and Abby Gilkerson-2nd Grade teacher from McKinley Elementary, visited KGFX today to talk about Relay Recess.  This American Cancer Society program teaches students about cancer awareness in areas like Sun Protection, Eating Healthier and more.  Both schools have been fundraising and have gathered just over $3,800.  Tomorrow, all McKinley and Washington K-3 students will go to Hollister Field to go through different stations and the 4th and 5th graders at Washington will be at the Bowling Alley to participate in Relay Recess there.  Students will decorate a luminaria bag like the ones used during Relay for Life and all cancer survivors are asked to come and wear purple shirts to participate with the students.  Listen to this morning’s interview on the audio bar below:
