Elementary Students Raise Funds for Murphy Animal Shelter
Tibbals Elementary and Akin Elementary Gifted and Talented students raised money through a "Sticky Business" Project to benefit the Murphy Animal Shelter. Over 50 students raised more than $600 for the shelter. Whitney Rowell is the GT teacher at both of the schools.
Each student was on a team that came up with a design made of duct tape. The students made their items then set up a shop to sell their goods. Items for sale included: wallets, purses, bow ties, hair bows and many other creative ideas.
