Annual Walk-A-Thon Raises Funds for Technology, Library, and Campus Beautification

On October 8, 2015, the students, staff and parents of Ekstrand Elementary School will come together for the annual Walk-A-Thon to raise funds for technology, the library, and campus beautification. While families raise money for the cause, the school is also seeking donations from local businesses.

“We have set a goal of $10,000—support from local businesses would make such a difference in reaching that goal,” Principal Lucinda Newton said. “We are working toward a 1:1 student to technological device ratio, and Walk-A-Thon funds will help us get there. We want to purchase new books for our library and complete some beautification projects for our campus.”

 

Donations can be made from http://home.ekstrand.us/ using the PayPal Walkathon link on the right side.
