When I stopped by St Joseph High School in Metuchen ( where I used to teach), I learned that the young men of the school will be participating in an Academic Challenge contest during the 2008-2009 school year. The Challenge is sponsored by Cablevision as part of Cablevision's "Power to Learn " service. I also learned that the faculty were offered an opportunity to compete in a Charity Challenge against faculty from another school to raise funds for the charity of their choice.
The St. Joe's team, made up of Mr. Powers, Mr. O'Boyle, Mr. Martin and Sr Ann Toner, decided that they would raise funds for the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation(KOH). In the past, I had spoken to the Principal, John Anderson, and a number of teachers and staff about my role on the Board of KOH and the need for research monies for Ovarian Cancer research. I am thrilled that the school chose KOH to be their charity . KOH will be getting a donation from Cablevision based on the points that the St Joe's teachers earned during the competition against Ardsley High School.
Thanks to the administration, faculty and staff for remembering the need for Ovarian Cancer Research and supporting KOH.
LivingStrong and proud of my colleagues at St Joe's
