     Relay For Life: Middletown Continues the Fight
     

    "Calling all heroes! Middletown’s 2015 Relay for Life  will take place at North on June 6th-7th starting at 11am. With a superhero theme, Middletown is ready to fight back!

    At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones that they lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. Events are up to 24 hours long because cancer never sleeps, so each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times, and games according to themes are hosted by each of the relay teams throughout the night.

    There are different types of laps and the schedule varies based on what your committees decide. Here are the types of laps:

    Every year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million and the American Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in research in every type of cancer and providing free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers. They are fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer, in our community and everyone else’s. Through fundraising involvement, Relay For Life participants ensure the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society is supported. Volunteers can find fundraising ideas and encouragement through a number of channels on Relay for Life’s website and on Relay Nation, an online community developed just for Relay For Life participants.  Each year, the achievements of a number of our volunteers and events are recognized and highlighted through our National Awards program."

    May 2013- Ten Fine Arts students of Mrs. Skibinski created beautiful portraits for children living in an orphanage in Haiti through the Memory Project. The Memory Project is a non-profit agency based in Wisconsin that coordinates the creation of portraits by high school students for children and teens living in orphanages throughout the world. The portraits will be hand delivered in July by Memory Project founder/ambassador Ben Schumaker. Copies of the portraits are on display outside the auditorium/library.  
     
    This has been a much anticipated annual project for students in Mrs. Skibinski's classes for several years.
    Asbury Park Press -March 20, 2008  - Excerpt from an article written by staff writer, Jennifer Bradshaw. 
    "At Middletown North, 10 art students participated in The Memory Project, creating art for students in Third World countries. Art teacher Amy Wilder-Skibinski said photos were sent to a school of underprivileged children in El Salvador. Middletown students created their own interpretations of the photos using pencils or paints, wrote a letter that included a photo of themselves and sent their artwork to the children.  'One of the students is fluent in Spanish and translated (the letters),' she said, referring to junior Laura Martinez, 17.  After receiving the photos and art, the children in El Salvador were encouraged to send artwork of their own back to the Middletown students.  'It was really interesting,' said junior Melissa Lewis, 16. 'They trust us with their identity, and we have to capture it and put it on canvas.'  Students were allowed to choose their own style to create the portraits. Some used brightly colored paints; others used colored pencils or charcoals.  'It was such a big undertaking,' Wilder-Skibinski said. '(The principal) was pleased that the kids got involved.'
