For their end of the year community service project, the New Albany Elementary School’s 5th grade EXCEL students designed and painted chairs, tables, and stools which were sold at auction raising a total of $1,800.
The project’s goal was to benefit a charity or community member in need. Funds raised were divided between two beneficiaries: St. Jude Children’s Research Foundation in honor of Madison Hardy, a survivor of childhood cancer, and NAES teacher, Casie Cook, who is currently battling cancer.
