Effingham County High School pre-Kindergarten, along with help from Mrs. Donna Holder’s National Art Honors Society, raised $977 for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital. Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Scott taught the pre-K students about how important it is to help others in need.

After many lessons and class discussions on helping others, the students did a fundraiser for St. Jude’s. They made morning announcements at ECHS asking for donations, collected donations at their homes, and also collected from ECHS teachers as well as students.

Their donations were sent, along with cards they made for the children, to St. Jude’s.
