In late May, the Eagle Hill Lower School Leadership Council, Mrs. Connolly’s Study Skills Class, and the Upper School Student Council combined their efforts to raise more than $700 through a bake sale to assist the victims of the tornado in Oklahoma. All funds will be sent to the Red Cross to assist them in their efforts.

This is just one of the many projects the students at Eagle Hill School take on each year in their desire to be better connected to the global community. In their classes and through community service events, the students learn about world issues and concerns, and investigate ways in which they can lend their assistance to make life easier for those around them, or when tragedy hits.

In the last few years, the students have raised funds and/or provided their time and energy for local charities such as Adopt-a-Dog, Neighbor to Neighbor, St. Luke’s Soup Kitchen, Sweet Readers and others.

Globally, their energies have been directed towards the Red Cross for hurricane relief (after storms like Katrina and Sandy) and an orphanage in Africa, to name a few.
