School Briefs: Heath Brook Toy Drive, TMHS Basketball Fundraiser are Slam Dunks

The Heath Brook School Preschool Program recently collected more than 100 toys, in honor of one of their Heath Brook classmates. Their goal was 100 donations by the hundredth day of school, which was February 7. Great job students!

Heath Brook Preschool students ran a successful toy drive.

100 toys + a big check = lots of Tewksbury spirit
Items collected will be donated to a local hospital.

And, over at TMHS, the TMHS girls basketball team with a lot of community support raised money to support Coach Mike Hayes, who is battling brain cancer. At a match between Tewksbury and Central Catholic, the stands were full of people sporting “We Fight Together” shirts and hoping to win one of two sets of Celtics tickets that were being raffled.

Organizer Krissy Polimeno says the event was a big success, and Coach Mike Hayes and his wife Jess, pictured above, will be presenting the Pappas Center for Neuro-Oncology Innovation Fund at Mass General Hospital a check for $5,512.  There are more photos from the event, below.

Finally, the TMHS Interact Club Food Drive is ongoing now through Friday, Feb. 18. All items collected will be donated to the Tewksbury Community Pantry. Some suggested items:
● Toilet paper (no larger than 4 pack)
● Paper towels (no larger than a 2 pack)
● Laundry detergent (small size)
● Breakfast foods
● Snacks
