News for Today

Please join Thompson Middle School as one of many D303 schools to partner with Cal’s Angels at our first annual “Just Shave It” event. Did you know the pharmaceutical industry has approximately 900 adult cancer drugs in the development pipeline and almost none for children’s cancers? Since the late 1960’s, there have only been 3 new drugs for children! This must change, and we must change it! In order to change it, we need your help! Our “Just Shave It” event is being held on Saturday, March 3rd at 5:00 pm at North. Please consider signing up to  volunteer your time, donate your hair or, shave your head! Check your email for the link to the Thompson Just Shave It site, and help us fight the WAR on Pediatric Cancer.
