In town for an event at the South Carolina Aquarium, Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin visited campus on Friday and helped celebrate the Lower School's impressive donation of $1,400 to the Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital. The money was raised during last week's non-uniform day.
Jeff seemed impressed by our student's awareness of the endangerment of sea turtles and the girls' capacity to give of themselves for a cause they believe in. #girlswiththewill #ahgirlsmakeadifference #savetheseaturtles

Mrs. Carey's Honors Geometry classes have been working for months on a quilting project to donate to the NICU at MUSC Children’s Hospital. Students designed, created a materials list, measured, cut, and sewed their quilts independently.
These quilts will give the babies a special place to lay (or shield their sensitive eyes from the harsh lights.) They will also give the families a much needed boost that someone is thinking of them during this difficult time. #ahgirlsmakeadifference #girlswiththewill
Earth Day speaks to a number of Ashley Hall Hallmarks - compassionate and worldly to name a few. Here's how our girls are celebrating the day:
A team of 17 Jenkins Hall 9th graders is partnering with Water Missions International in the pilot year competition of the Global Change Challenge, an annual competition between teams of middle and high school students to solve global problems. They have produced a short video highlighting their proposed solution for solving the global water crisis. Check out the video in the link below.
But we need you to take one more step. The Ashley Hall team is competing for cash prizes with teams using their winnings to purchase technology for student use. This is a win-win initiative. Please make a donation as a way to inspire and support the world-changing efforts of these future leaders. To donate go to: http://www.globalchangechallenge.org/#!donate/c1avz
All donations need to be made by 7:00pm pm April 22.

The 7th grade recently attended the South Carolina YMCA’s Model UN Convention in Black Mountain, North Carolina, where students engaged in debate with over 200 participants from all over the state to discuss and attempt to resolve worldwide dilemmas with diplomacy and decorum.
Thanks to much hard work and the guidance of Geography instructors Mary Webb and Aubrey Groves, this group came home with many individual honors and ultimately earned the distinction of being Premier Delegation, a title bestowed upon the group that, as a whole, best embodies the mission of Model United Nations at the conference.
