Wear Pink to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Harmony Science Academy would like to invite all staff, parents, and students to Go Pink to raise awareness for Breast Cancer! We invite you to wear a Pink Shirt with Jeans on Wednesdays in October with a donation of $2.00 that will go to the National Breast Cancer Inc. You may pay at the lobby with our PTO parent representatives.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages. Breast cancer is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cells of the breast and is the second leading cause of death among women.
