FREDERICKTOWN — Fredericktown Elementary School is proving that it’s never too early to learn about the significance of spending time and energy to benefit others. The school’s youngest students have already learned the importance of giving back to their local communities.

Every year, Fredericktown kindergarten students participate in a fundraiser. For the past two years, these students have been working to fundraise for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, in the transport department, for brand new wagons. In 2017, Fredericktown kindergarten students raised over $8,000 for the hospital.
