ROANOKE, Texas -- In school, there are a ton of clubs your kid can join. But have you ever heard of the Ponytail Club? Well, the students at Hughes Elementary in Roanoke are putting a new twist on extra curricular activities.

After spending months growing their hair, they're cutting it all off ! But it's all for a good cause.

All hair donations will go to Pantene for people suffering from cancer, and it's all thanks to Ms. Waters for growing and inspiring the club.

"It started because I have a passion for giving and helping others. I definitely believe children should have a servant heart and care about other people," Waters explained.

High school cosmetology students gathered in the gym Thursday afternoon to do the honors of snipping ponytails.

"Girls with long hair, like mines, I suggest you do this because it's for a really good cause," one student said.

"Our students really love their hair, but they knew they were going to give back,"  said Hughes Principal Jessica McDonald.

Guess you can say these kids are a cut above the class!
