Katy ISD's Creech Elementary students celebrate raising more than $52,000 for Komen Houston since 2006 - Each year since 2006, the classes in each grade at Creech Elementary have collected pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters (and occasional larger bills) during the month of October to support the local Komen Houston Race for the Cure. The students have conducted classroom “pink cup” campaigns every year, bringing their collective donation to $52,504 at the end of this year’s campaign. And each year Principal Elena Thrun has ended the campaign period with a fun event for the children – one year she kissed a cute little pink pig to the delight of the children.
