Daffodils sales help American Cancer Society

The Daffodil Days fundraiser is raising money by selling daffodils for the American Cancer Society.

The fundraiser due date has been pushed back to Feb. 4.

Eighth grade reading teacher John Wharton used to be in charge of the fundraiser.

“National Junior Honor Society ran the daffodil sales since we were over at Roosevelt. We were the second or third best selling in the state. The American Cancer Society decided to discontinue Daffodil Days. We haven’t done it for the past three years. National Junior Honors Society decided to do Thon for the Backpack program,” Wharton said.

Family and consumer science teacher Kristina Rose is in charge of Daffodil Days this year. This is the first year of doing the fundraiser again. Rose hopes to raise a lot of money to support cancer.

“I think we are doing well this year. We are getting tons of order forms. We get to support cancer and get beautiful daffodils,” Rose said.

A bunch of flowers can be purchased for $10. A pot of daffodils can be purchased for $15. One single daffodil can be sold for $1.

Student Council is helping out with Daffodil Days this year. They will be delivering daffodils to students all day on March 20.

To order daffodils see Rose or a student council member.
