Springdale Elementary School participated in a new fundraiser this year, a Boosterthon Fun Run. Boosterthon is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales. The program promoted fitness, leadership, and character, said Springdale Principal Dr. Amy Duke.
The students asked for pledges toward the number of laps they could run at the Fun Run on Friday, August 24. Through daily character education lessons with the Boosterthon team members, students learned about how making good choices reflects strength of character.
The new fundraiser was a huge success that raised fitness awareness and money for school projects.
