Watertown --- As we turn the page to November, one high school is flipping to "Movember."
You can call it Watertown High School's latest initiative. First, there was a visit from the first lady in August, and most recently a woman's health campaign.
"For part of our homecoming we had a pink out day, for breast cancer awareness, where all the kids were pink," said social studies teacher, Kristin Pickett.
But this could be Ms. Pickett, and her students most unique project. One that gets teachers to start with a clean shave, and throughout the entire month of November they're going to grow out a mustache.
"We're going to have pictures of the teachers mustaches' on the wall at lunch, and we're going to have buckets with their names on them, and they will be able to put change in the buckets," said Port.
Mike Bartley is one of the 14 teachers participating, and is looking for inspiration on, www.movember.com. It's a site that benefits men's health issues, and the one that all the proceeds raised, will be donated.
"I'd like to see $400," said Port.
While a small donation is great, for Ms. Pickett it's more about teaching her students another lesson, that can't be found in a textbook.
