As the assembly drew to a close, the students were challenged by the Fun Run ladies to receive a pledge from all 50 states.

Students raise funds for school activities

Thursday, February 18, 2016 by LINDA DEIBERT in School

Students at Weisenberg Elementary School recently had a Race For Education as part of their fall festival.

Activities included decorating saucers, running and a bean bag toss.

The event was designed to raise money for field trips and special activities for the students.

The goal set for the event was $15,000 with the promise if students achieved that goal, their principal, Jill Berlet, would turn herself into a “human sundae.”

Not only did they meet the goal, they surpassed it by raising $23,000 for their activity fund.
