SAMS students “Tape a Teacher” to the wall for a good cause

Madison Ballew, a seventh-grader, wanted to give back to the neonatal intensive care unit where she spent the first weeks of her life after being born two months early.

For her 13th birthday, Madison asked family and friends for donations of preemie clothing and gift cards, which she will donate to the West Penn NICU. She decided to expand her impact by including Shaler Area Middle School in the fundraising efforts.

With the support of the school community, Madison and a group of her friends organized a “Tape a Teacher” event on September 30. Students had the opportunity to purchase a length of duct tape during their lunch periods and use it to tape a volunteer teacher to the wall.

Thanks to the support of Home Depot, which donated materials for the event, the school raised more than $400 to be donated to the West Penn NICU.
