Elementary School: Results of the Sponsor Run 2016

This year’s Sponsor Run on June 2, 2016 was a huge success and by running, the students, once again, we were able to raise a sizeable amount of money. We would like to say a heartfelt Thank-You to our generous sponsors.

In total we collected $2436.80! Some of the results are still coming in, so the amount will even be higher in the end.

We were able to proceed with some initial purchases. Every class has received a new container box for toys and different games for their recess times. In the foreseeable future, monkey bars and other appropriate equipment will be added. 

We would especially like to express our gratitude to the following “big donors”:

The Everett Family $224

The Gonzalez Family and the Nighbert Family $210

The Genieser Family $184
