The incredibly generous student body at Legacy Point Elementary
School decided to do things a little differently during the holiday
season. The kids decided to donate money to The Children’s Hospital
instead of using it for the school’s annual Winter Holiday
Teachers typically collect $3 from each student to fund the
party, but the children wanted to follow through with the school’s
mission statement: “learn, live, love, laugh and leave a legacy,”
said Eric Sanders, a sixth-grade teacher at Legacy Point. The idea
was first proposed by another sixth-grade teacher, Andrea
“We thought we would present that to the students to see if it
was OK,” Sanders said. “The response from the students was
overwhelmingly ‘yes, we would love to do that.’”
The school will present a check for $1,100 to a representative
from The Children’s Hospital during a student assembly Jan. 16.
