Art City Elementary School held their first Walkathon fund raiser on Friday, September 23, 2011. Most everyone in the school participated from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Even though it was called a “Walkathon” many of the students jogged the whole hour, in doing so they racked up a lot of laps, a few of the Sixth grade students said they did between 36 and 40 laps. The results of the pledges from the students walking/running are coming in. Monday’s total is $10,604. We can’t wait to see what the end results will be. The teacher of the class with the highest total brought in will “Sumo” wrestle the Principal Mrs. Nielsen. Thanks go out to the students for their hard work before getting pledges and their hard work walking and running. Thank you to all of the PTA and other volunteers who put this together.
