Students in a Project Based Learning class at Miller Middle School took a project from its infancy to a successful completion recently.
The students baked cookies and sold 444 of them to Miller staff, raising $350 for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
The class, taught by Linda Russell and Lyndsey Wycoff, presented a check to Ashley Hoff of the hospital on December 19.
Mrs. Russell said the students went “above and beyond” on this project as they researched recipes and ingredients and also took time selecting a place to donate the money.
Hoff was very thankful and impressed with all the work the students put into the project.
“You guys did an awesome job,” Hoff told the students.
