Good Morning Eisenhower community! Next week is Movember. As a school, we raised 294 dollars for men's mental health awareness and prostate cancer last year and are hoping to continue the celebration of facial hair for Movember which is an initiative designed to raise awareness of men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health/suicide prevention. The name “Movember” is a combination of “mo” (for mustache) and “November” (the month that the initiative takes place). This year, we hope to make this a community initiative.
If you would like to grow out or sport a stache, beard, some mutton chops etc, submit your photo along with your name and child's name to Mr. Giarratano firstname.lastname@example.org with a chance to be featured in our General's Update.
Here is a link that allows you to donate to Movember which "is the leading charity changing the face of men's health. Together we can make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention." https://movember.com/m/eisenhower
I want to shout out Mr. Carman for spearheading the cause and raising awareness in our building!
We are also attaching a mustache template so all can sport some facial hair this Movember!
