Panther Team students participated in a “Project of Love” in May that allowed them to make a difference in children’s lives in another part of the world. Students designed and made 26 t-shirt dresses, 21 t-shirts, and 50 school supply pouches that were personally delivered to orphans in Uganda in July. This is just one way our students are learning to take responsibility for making their world a better place.
