On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, Mrs. Barbara Garcia, teacher, and Catherine Umanzor, 8th grade student, cut and donated their hair to CWHL (Children With Hair Loss). CWHL was created as a resource for ALL CHILDREN who have medically-related hair loss. It is their mission to empower these children to become whole again by making hair replacement available to those who may be financially challenged and might otherwise not have a means of obtaining the hair they want and need.
Mrs. Francis Gomez, one of our parents and a hairstylist, came up to school to make the cut. Mrs. Garcia’s and Catherine’s hair was tied with a hairband and cut. Each of them is donating about a 10-12 inch ponytail. Mrs. Gomez cut and styled their hair in front of the students, faculty, and parents. We are so proud of them!!
