Wendel’s Fun Run Update
Our Wendel’s Fun Run Fundraiser is off to a great start!! Thank you to everyone who has signed up and started collecting donations!! We’ve raised over $5,000 so far!! Congratulations to Mrs. Betts’ kindergarten class for raising the most money as of last Friday and for winning our first weekly prize, pajama day and a Rice Krispee Treat celebration! Kindergarten is also in the lead for the top grade!! Will they get to slime Mrs. Inskeep? Or can another grade take the lead?? 
This week, we also have a Surprise Challenge where everyone has a fresh start! The top two classes who raise the most money this week (Monday through Friday only) will receive extra recess! (This challenge does not include donations prior to Monday October 7.)
Sign up at and collect those donations! You can also bring in cash or checks with your collection form.
