Superhero  Relay for Life raise $1,000

New York Mills sixth grade students, with help from the Mills Dream Team, hosted a Superhero Relay for Life event last week at the school. All week students collected donations of change, which totaled $1,000.36. During the Relay on Wednesday, each grade had an opportunity to visit the school playground to walk a lap in hour of cancer survivors, as well as visit educational booths. Sixth grade teacher Laurine Braukmann, who is also an active member of the Mills Dream Team, said the relay was a way for sixth grade students to address citizenship, which is part of the Minnesota standards for social studies. Prior to the relay day, students put together presentations to teach others how to stay healthy. There were booths on the importance of exercise, making healthy food choices, wearing sun screen and the health hazards of tobacco.  read entire story. . . .
