Fun Run-a-wow!

Thank-you and congratulations!
We wen
t ABOVE and BEYOND our Goal

We are amazed at all the effort and enthusiasm that came out of this fundraiser. We could not have raised our grand gross total of $24,500 without all of the school working together to gather those 714 pledges. After expenses, we will have netted close to $20,000 for our general PTA fund that will go to school programs and materials. Some fun stats:
100% of our student body participated in the kick-off, run, and celebration and joined in the fun and spirit of working together for a common goal. 40% of our students were able to collect pledges towards this goal. A whopping 14 of our classrooms reached their goals of $1,000, with Teams Zirulnik, Johnson, and Luke-Skol leading the way.

160 students met their goal of $50, and there were 55 student pledge superstars who raised more than $150 each, including an incredible 20 students who raised more than $300 each. Erick Cohen (4) won our grand prize, raising an amazing $755 for the school! Our other top earners per grade were Varrsha Chenthuran (K), Jacob Arrant (1), Coco Goodman (2), Jaxson Nuzzo (3), Rebekah Bagwell (5), Evan Eadie (6), Jaiden Rogers (7),  & Gavin Cahill (8). Wow!
What amazing work all of our students have done. This was most certainly a team effort! As we wrap up this event, we will be getting out the last of the prizes very soon, and, hopefully, students will keep running!
A big thank you and shout out to all of our teachers, students and their families, our supporting sponsors, the amazing Fun Run-a-thon committee members, the many volunteers who helped out on our event days, those who donated prizes, and of course, the many, many people who gave pledges in support of our school.
