When it comes to giving, Mrs. Mills’ fourth grade class at Lewis and Clark Elementary is no stranger. In addition to enjoying secret Santas in the classroom, the students also elected to give to charity. The class collected $167 and chose two charities. The American Red Cross received $97 to go specifically to the children affected by Hurricane Sandy for Christmas, and the American Cancer Society received $74 towards our next local Relay for Life.
