Emerald Cove Students Raise Money For LLS

The Pre-IT Academy, AVID and National Junior Honor Society groups partnered up at Emerald Cove Middle School to raise more than $4,300 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. More than 70 teachers competed to raise the most money to find a cure for blood cancers during the three-week campaign. Mrs. Johnson-Arnett’s sixth-grade math class raised more than $370, and Ms. White’s eight-grade math class raised more than $450. Mrs. Shuhaiber’s sixth-grade Pre-IT Academy class, however, was up for the challenge and succeeded with a classroom contribution of $540. Students received a luncheon reward from the Olive Garden in Wellington for their dedication. Shown above is the winning class with the check for LLS.
