Students in grades 9-12 at Carle Place High School recently showcased their competitive spirit and community dedication by participating in the annual Battle of the Classes: Battling for a Cause event. Organized by the Student Organization and the Key Club, this year’s event focused on raising funds for the Autism Society.

The students engaged in a series of fun and challenging games including volleyball, an obstacle course, Just Dance, relay races, quizbowl, ultimate frisbee, basketball, bubble ball, and tug of war. In addition to the spirited competition, participants made a pledge to Choose to Include. This campaign, sponsored by the Special Olympics, promotes inclusivity in all aspects of life, especially in school events.

The event was a remarkable success, with students collectively raising over $11,000 for the Autism Society throughout the 2023-2024 school year. The funds were gathered through the Battle of the Classes event and the Dancing with the Frogs initiative, demonstrating the students' commitment to making a positive impact in their community.
