EHHS Writing Lab Fundraiser

Ends November 30th


The writing lab is a peer-tutoring program facilitated by East Hamilton's chapter of National English Honor Society. As the club advisor and an English teacher, Mrs. Luckhart can't help but see the great influence this lab could have on schoolwide literacy. Her goal through this project is to raise the necessary funding to purchase two desktop computers to increase the relevance and effectiveness of the writing lab next year. Please visit the DonorsChoose funding page for more information about this project.
