The 6th Grade was the champion collecting $473.82, the 8th grade came in runner-up with $222.37. The highest donor was Chloe Jenkins who brought in $179.86 worth of coins. Thank you all for your effort in rounding up all the loose change.

6th Grade

Sixth Grade finished their Unit on Ancient Greece by traveling to Nashville for a tour of the Parthenon Museum at Centennial Park. Students were shown the giant stage of Athena and learned information about the construction of the Parthenon and history of the structure. Many stories of Greece myths and Legends were discussed during our tour. As a culminating project, students are creating travel brochures to highlight a trip to Greece.
