Auldern Students Help Others During Pandemic
In an effort to stay safe and limit exposure to COVID-19, the amazing students at Auldern Academy have experienced a lot of changes lately, particularly related to losing their Spring break, not having family visits, and losing outings. During this difficult time, they have graciously decided to help those in need. While in art class, they have been learning to sew and make masks to donate to various local medical groups, including Waverly Hematology Oncology as well as Greenville Shriners Hospital.
Auldern Academy staff and parents are so thrilled to see this special group of students find a silver lining in this current situation. Choosing to help those who are helping others is a true sign of maturity and growth.
That being said, the spirit of serving others is not new to Auldern Academy. Earlier this year, our students led an amazing fundraiser for the Boy Scouts of America. In their ceramics class, they made beautiful bowls, which they then sold to staff and the community at a vendor fair. The proceeds, totaling over $850, went to the Boy Scouts! It was a wonderful project to witness and see students become so passionate about.
