The male teachers at Willow Dale Elementary have given a twist to the fairly new fundraising phenomenon known as 'Movember."  The 10 teachers performed the most necessary action, growing out their facial hair for the month of November.

Instead of being content with some scruffy beards and moustaches, the teachers grabbed their razors and got creative. They strategically shaved off certain parts of the facial hair, leaving some interesting designs behind.

For the rest of the month, donation buckets will be set up in Willow Dale's lobby, one for each teacher. Students will be able to vote for their favorite facial hair by placing money in the corresponding container.

The money raised from the effort will benefit the family of Willow Dale student Rialee Jacoby, a 10-year old Warminster girl battling Ewing Sarcoma, a bone cancer that formed a tumor on her leg earlier this year.

She recently underwent surgery to remove the tumor and is currently recovering at home, according to the Rally for Rialee Facebook page.

The participating teachers are:
Linwood Martin, 4th Grade
Kevin Woolston, 3rd Grade
Nicholas D'Andrea, 5th Grade
Michael Soncini, 1st Grade
Michael Scancella, Gifted Program
Noah Sideman, School Psychologist
Frank Bauerle, Music Teacher
Matthew Freedman, 4th Grade
Michael Regosch, Music Teacher
Jeff Markowski, 3rd Grade
