Clarksville Academy Third Graders Launch Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

 

Clarksville AcademyClarksville, TN – Clarksville Academy is providing its students a well-rounded education beyond the boundaries of the classroom and exposes its students to service learning and fundraising ethics at the elementary school level.  These students are learning at an early age the value of selfless service and the ability to make a difference by working together in support of a worthy cause.

During December 2012, instead of giving attention to holiday gifting, toys and game systems, a group of third graders began making paper airplanes and paper footballs, selling them for $1.00 and $2.00 each and telling patrons that the money was going to Breast Cancer Awareness.
