In addition to their donation book drive, the AVID classes at MacArthur hosted a hair donation event.  Thirteen brave students, parents, and staff had eight or more inches of their hair cut off to donate to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.  This program works with the American Cancer Society to provide real hair wigs to cancer patients.  An additional 10 students donated previously cut ponytails.  All donors were able to have a special family member or friend make the initial ponytail “Cut,” then stylists from the community volunteered their time and skills to style all of the donor’s hair at a luncheon.  All students were invited to honor a loved one who is or has battled cancer on a tribute mural in the quad.f the donor’s hair at a luncheon.  All students were invited to honor a loved one who is or has battled cancer on a tribute mural in the quad.
