Breast Cancer Awareness Day
is Bronx Science’s Breast Cancer Awareness Day! Each year we choose a day in October to raise awareness about the disease and to honor and support Breast Cancer patients and survivors.
We hope to show our collective support in two major ways that you can participate in: first, wear pink! (Pink is the recognized color for Breast Cancer awareness, and we want to #PaintTheSchoolPink in solidarity.) Second: come to the back of the cafeteria (near the COSA office) during your lunch period to write letters to cancer patients from Montefiore Hospital who could use a kind word.
See you all then.

On , Bronx Science will be hosting a blood drive in conjunction with the Red Cross. The drive will be held in the multi-purpose room next to the library from If you are at least 16 years old by the date of the blood drive, you are eligible to donate & we need you!
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood and this is an easy way to make a meaningful impact on your community. If you are 16 years or older, please help out! All blood donors will receive a snack after their donation as well as a sticker.
To sign up for a time slot, go to this link.
After your appointment is confirmed, form #1 must be filled out by 16 and 17 year old student donors and the form must also be notarized. You can get this done at a post office, bank or other places. Additionally, 16 year old donors must complete the Red Cross permission form for minors (linked as form #2 below), with some information about donating.
So to recap: all 16 and 17 year old donors must complete the school form (#1), and 16 year old donors must ALSO complete the Red Cross form (#2). Anyone 18 or older does not have to give any form, they only have to sign up for an appointment.
The form(s), along with a copy of your schedule should be turned in to Ms. Parness by , otherwise you will not be able to donate blood. You can submit the forms and schedule to her mailbox in the main office, or at the COSA office (room 017A) in the back of the cafeteria.
If you are over 18, a parent, staff, or alumni donor, you may simply sign up for an appointment time online (no forms are required). Thank you all in advance for your help saving lives through this donation!
