April Philanthropy Rise Against Hunger
Our K-5th Grade students all ran over the last few weeks to raise money, as well as our Middle Schoolers who had an awesome 5K event last week.
Thank you to all who made it such a great day. All our K-5 cheers and signs were so fun. Parents came out to run or cheer on our runners, and ASB rewarded the runners with Otter Pops. Even the rain stayed clear until after they were done!
