Stingray pride has been spreading in a big way at Emerald Coast Middle School. Ms. Anderson's Science Classes have been collecting gently used (and new) stuffed animals.  The collection benefits Shriners Children's Hospital and many children will be given a stuffed animal during their stay at the hospitals.  Ms. Anderson wants to thank all the students and teachers who participated in the stuffed animal drive. ECMS collected over 800 stuffed animals for Shriners. Way to go Stingrays!!!!! The stuffed animals are on their way to deserving children in Shrevport, Louisiana and Tampa, Florida.  Submitted by Angela Vance.
