Boosterthon Fun Run:
Our Boosterthon fundraiser has been a huge success, but we have more work to do, and more money to raise to get to our goal! Remember, every student with $2.00 per lap in pledges, or a flat $60 in pledges from this weekend, will receive a cool pair of Flip Frame sunglasses as a special prize!
Our pledges aren't just raising money for the school! They are helping us reach our goal of $35,000 so we can turn Mrs. Bairrington, and a yet to be named teacher, into a human ice cream sundae!! We have 6 days left to hit our goal!
Thank you for all of your support, and for helping your students take part in giving back to their school!
