DHS and Pink Week back button

Delta High School staff and students wore pink and joined the fight against breast cancer last week.

The leadership class, who organized the school-wide activities to raise money and bring awareness to the disease, kicked off the fun with a pie throwing fundraiser. For a dollar, students were able to buy a whipped cream pie and throw it at their favorite teachers.

Throughout the campaign, students supported “Pink Week” by wearing pink every day and buying pink ribbons. The winning Advisement Class with the most pink represented throughout the week won pink donuts and “pinked” their Advisement Teachers with color-run powder.

Students were more than up for the challenge.

“We were supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, honoring the taken and never ever giving up hope!” – Lissette Pulido.

“I liked how “Pink Week” wasn’t just one day. It made it relevant and more students participated throughout the week.” – Victor Bucio.

“The best thing about “Pink Week” is that it brought everybody together. It was not just a competition. It was an effort as a school to help and support breast cancer while having a good time.” – David Mercado.

The school raised $160 towards the fight against breast cancer, according to Delta Math Teacher Jenna Dee.
