Sagamore Middle School's St.Baldrick’s event on March 16th was a lively and fun event for the teachers and student body. The Sagamore Arrowettes and Cheer Team showed off their fantastic talents in the gym for all the students and teachers to see.  There were also many volunteers who had a chance to play Minute-to-Win-It games, as well as the chance to pie a teacher in the face, in honor of pie day, at the event.  Most importantly, many students and staff members volunteered to shave their heads, and several girls cut off inches of their very own hair to donate it to make wigs. For many of the shavees, it was not their first time participating in the event either. For those who shaved their heads for three years or more, students won awards for their continued donation to childhood cancer and were inducted into the League of Legendary Heroes. Sagamore raised over $12,000 this year with a 7th grade student, Joseph Sciara, donating the most. That money will be donated to childhood cancer research to help save the lives of child cancer patients. The amazing event could not have taken place without all of the brave students from Sagamore who raised money and gave up their hair. Many thanks to Mrs. Clark (Ms. Alexander), Mrs. Gustavsen, Mr. Berger, and the many others who volunteered to make this a great event.
