on Fourth Graders at the Fun Run
Fun Run Was Fun!
On October 4, 2019, the school had its fun and exciting fundraiser, the Fun Run. The goal was to raise $40,000 but as of writing this article, the school has raised close to $47,000! Money raised from this event will go towards important safety upgrades to the school.
The fourth graders were asked about their thoughts about the Fun Run. Here are their responses: Giovanni liked the prizes, the DJ and the music. DJ thought it was cool and he said he probably made more than 100 laps (the goal for each student was to run 40 laps).
