- St. Baldrick's Event: Addison Mizner is proud to be kicking off a new event on January 29, 2015. St. Baldrick's will be coming to our school and we will be following in the footsteps of many of our local area schools including Olympic Heights High School and Calusa Elementary. Students were introduced to the event after the music program this week, and information was also reiterated during Ms. Bennett's media classes to answer any additional questions. I encourage parents to take a look at the website www.stbaldricks.org to understand the mission of the St. Baldrick's organization. St. Baldrick's is specifically dedicated to eradicating children's cancer in our lifetime. They have reached the $100 million mark in research grant funding for children's cancer. We are raising funds to cure children's cancer, but we shave our heads to empathize and support children who are currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment and losing their hair. The shaving of our heads shows solidarity with these children. Please join us in making our first annual event a success! Your child does not need to shave his/her head to participate. They can simply be a volunteer and raise money as well. Please go to the website for more information and look in your child's backpack for the paperwork to be involved.
