Auburn Elementary School believes in celebrating the everyday moments that make our students and staff so special! The month of October was full of our students giving, succeeding, and learning in multiple ways.

The Auburn Leadership Club will be helping St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for the second year, by sponsoring a student Math-a-thon. Leadership students will present the Math-a-thon information to all homeroom classes K-8, with the math-a-thon work being completed over Thanksgiving break. Students have set their goal to raise $2000 by participation in the math-a-thon. If your business/workplace would like to sponsor a student/donate to the math-a-thon, please contact Sarah Hatton at 270-542-4181.
