Our School goal was $2,000 and we turned in $2,800 on bank day!” Team Captain Heather Barnado said. “I’m especially proud of Mrs. Stefanie Miller’s 5K student, Lillianna Kurtz, and family for collecting $225 on her own.”
Classes that raised $50 in spare change and/or donations received a popsicle at their lunch on Friday. Those classes included: Mrs. Miller’s 5K, Mrs. Mincey’s 5K, Mrs. Wicker’s first grade, Mrs. Sanders’ seconnd grade, Mrs. Lawson’s second grade, Mrs. Russell’s fourth grade, Mrs. Abee’s fourth grade, Mrs. Petty’s fifth grade, and Mr. Wells’ fifth grade.
The top two classes that raised the most money enjoyed a pizza party. The top raising class in grades K-2 was Mrs. Stefanie Miller’s and in grades 3-5 was Mr. Paul Wells.’
“I’m glad the campaign is over and I am relieved that I will not have to count and roll loose change for at least a year, but I am so proud and excited that we met and exceeded our school goal. It was all well worth it. I want to thank everyone for working so hard to make this campaign such a grand success,” Barnado said.
