Students from second to fifth grade helped raise money for their school Friday during an obstacle course fun run at Northside Elementary.
The event, sponsored by the school’s PTO, was expected to generate from $8,000 to $10,000.
PTO President Amy Tobitt said the money will be used to help the school buy Smart Boards for every classroom.
Funds are raised from pledges and donations.
“The kids ask for pledges or people can donate. The goal for each kid is to raise $100. Every kid gets something (incentives) if they bring in something (donations). Their rewards could be like an extra recess, popcorn, pizza party, ice cream, etc.,” said Tobitt.
The obstacle course was a new addition to the fun run this year
