The Babylon Junior-Senior High School Foreign Language Honor Society recently hosted the first student/teacher talent show, featuring teachers showcasing their talents alongside students in an effort to raise funds for the Promoting Health in Haiti organization.

Throughout the course of the evening, 10 teachers took to the stage alongside the talented students to sing, dance, perform musical numbers and recite poetry.

Babylon Junior-Senior Art School teacher Cheryl Schweider and the National Art Honor Society students also created "Home for Haiti" magnets and sold them to the community for additional fundraising purposes.

According to their website, the Promoting Health in Haiti organization seeks to improve health in the island country through enhancing nursing education and knowledge. With the combined efforts of so many volunteers, the community raised more than $1,500 for the organization. As a means of expressing her gratitude, the president of PHH shared a video message with the students and thanked them for their help.
