Congratulations to Courtney

EHS South students give back to community
March 14th is
known as "Pi Day" (03/14) and EHS South decided to use this as a
day to engage their students in fun and educational activities
while also benefitting local charities. On this day, students
were able to donate money and in turn wear a hat for the day.
Additionally, they were able to be placed in a drawing to throw
a whipped cream pie at a staff member. The more money a student
donated, the greater the likelihood they would be one of the few
to throw a whipped cream pie at a staff member. All of the
proceeds went to the "Friends of Kids with Cancer" organization.
all of the "Pi Day" activities were over, the students ate pie.
Pictures of the day are below:
