    Pennies for Patients

    We did it again!!! Our 2012"Pennies for Patients" charity drive to help children who have been afflicted with blood cancer was a great success. IS 281 has been a top three finisher in NYC for 8 consecutive years (top three out of all NYC public schools). Three times we were #1. This year our school community raised $7,902.88.
    Find out more about Cavallaro's Pennies for Patients drive here.

    Please watch this touching video made by Stephanie about the life of a girl who is afflicted with Cancer.
