Click, who is a teacher at the school and madam state president of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles ladies, spoke about how cancer has touched the school and how the donation originated. The Panther Pride Drumming for Hope band played drums (real ones and revamped trashcans) and even performed with empty water bottles, science equipment and pencils. Principal Franco said his students were active participants in the donation. (Alison Penn Photo)
