Limbs 4 Life Project

We are very excited that our 5th grade students want to make a difference in the lives of others! As a result of their recent IB study, the fifth graders decided to raise money in order to help change lives by giving amputee victims a second chance to walk again. The campaign, Limbs 4 Life will run until the end of January. The goal is to reach $1075.00 by that time. Please help our students experience what a difference they can make when they think beyond themselves in order to help others.
