This year at Chaparral High School Pink Week was not celebrated.
A few students were upset that Pink week wasn’t done at the High School this year. “I was really looking forward to participating and support breast cancer during school,” said Brianna Ibarra, a student at Chaparral High.
“Pink week is a week where people can awareness those who suffer from breast cancer,” said Janet Suistatia. When the school would participate in Pink Week a lot of different activities were contributed during that week. Not everyone is obligated to participate in all activities but everyone can.
There are some activities that help in making donations to people who have cancer.
An activity that helped raise money was called “Kiss the pig”. “Students would donate a penny to whoever teacher they wanted to make kiss the pig, the teacher with the most pennies wins and has to kiss the pig,” said Sustaita. Another donation wise activity was the class with the most pennies got to have a pizza party.
No matter what the activity was, it was always supporting breast cancer.
This year the school may have not been able to do a pink week but according to Sustaita “I had my room decorated with cancer awareness decor items.
