Mrs. Ashbaugh's ELL students participated in a very worthwhile service project!!!


Mrs. Ashbaugh's class created a whale and cut it out! After posting it, for each Facebook, Instagram or Twitter share at #WhalesforaCause, The Jason Dufner Foundation will donate a healthy lunch for a child in need. This project was active through September 25, 2015! What a perfect way to help others in need of help!!!

Thank you to all students who participated!
