Boosterthon raises funds for Makerspace

Thursday, February 16, 2017 by LINDA DEIBERT Special to The Press in Local News

Once again Northwestern Elementary students are using the Boosterthon to raise funds for their school.

Last year, they raised over $16,000 for field trips and assemblies.

This year, they are attempting to raise $20,000 for Makerspace, as well as field trips. Makerspace is designed to assist teachers in the integration of math, art, science and more into their curriculum.

During a recent assembly, students learned about the Boosterthon.

The Northwestern Elementary Black and Gold Dash culminated Feb. 9 with a glow run in the gym.

There were many themed events including Celebrity, Thriller and Running Man laps.

As an incentive, Principal Maria Pulli told the students as a reward for reaching their goal they can turn her into a human ice cream sundae.
