Fall Fun Run Fundraiser Results are in!

Thank you Blackwell families for helping make the Fun Run Fundraiser a big success. With tremendous participation from our parent community we were able to raise $42,787.49. This was a fantastic result thanks to the generosity of the Blackwell community including friends, extended families and community members. The students won prizes throughout the event, participated in the Fit Character initiative and learned about a fit lifestyle and a strong character for success. The money raised from the Fun Run will go back to the students and school via grants and PTSA programs. A few examples include:

* Student Academic Aid Fund (Scholastic Guided Readers, AM and AR, Mystery Science)

* Special grants for Curriculum Aids, library books, staff development and more

* Writing curriculum and resource books

* Classroom Scholarship Fund

* Library Improvement Fund

* Assemblies, in school field trips

* Art Start, Deep Space Sparkle art supplies, kiln

* Health Room Medicine Cart

* Gaga pit
