Freeport Elementary students raised over $4000 for Cancer Freeze. Students donated money during their P.E. classes and earned rubber ducks from the coach’s duck pond. The students competed for the right to participate in a “Pie the Teacher” reward for the class raising the most money.

First grade students raised $1,091, and won the honor of “Pie the Teacher.” Ava Garrett and Aiden Hester were the top earners for the first grade and got to personally smoosh a pie.  Special pie recipients were coaches: Cortez Caldwell, Amy Brassell, Holly Martin, and Assistant Principal, Laurie Campbell.  The first grade students were very excited about the fundraiser and watching the pie presentation. Third grade students came in a very close 2nd place raising $1,055 and were invited to watch the presentation as runner up.

A check for $4044.46 was presented to Jennifer Davidson from Cancer Freeze, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to chosen individual(s) from South Alabama or Northwest Florida who are battling cancer. Freeport Elementary wants to thank Cancer Freeze for their amazing work in helping our local residents; all students and families for their notable generosity; and Holly Martin and Amy Brassell for organizing this awesome fundraiser.
