HES Fifth Grade Service Project Collects over 2500 Items! Thanks

Our Fifth Grade students set the example for the rest of our building with their service learning project by collecting over 2500 items for the Archangel Troop 1-32 Cavalry, 101st Airborne, Fort Campbell, KY. Items collected included hand sanitizer, tissues, toiletries, movies (DVDs), books, magazines, gum, lip balm, and sunscreen.  To make it a Win-Win for everyone, students earned a  FREE PJ Day on Friday, February 10th for donating one or more items to our project!  On top of that, the classroom with the most items collected will have a FREE electronics time scheduled for their homeroom.  Thanks to our families for supporting our fifth graders!  Way to go, Hornets!!!
