Beacon Hill Elementary School raised a total of $8,076.05 through a recent Literacy Reading Fundraiser.
The parent council organized a three-week reading event knowing it takes 21 days to form a habit. The three weeks included teachers helping students set reading goals each week.
Those who met goals earned tickets to put towards over 50 prizes students could choose from.
The overall top fund raiser, Jaxson Goldade, a kindergarten student, brought in $385, garnishing the task of throwing a pie in the principal’s, Trevor Sanche, face.
An ice-cream party was won by the kindergarten classes who brought in $2,370.
The top fund raisers from each grade were:
- Kyler Lawrence – Kindergarten,
- Paisley Zayak – Grade 1,
- Taya Van Koughnett – Grade 2,
- Carter Smith – Grade 3,
- A tie in Grade 4 between Grace Davis and Lexus Hardy,
- Anna Jada Chase – Grade 5
- Brandon Poholko – Grade 6
The funds raised will be used to purchase library books, and support early literacy and the home reading programs.
The parent council wanted one fund raiser for the year and felt a big fund raiser was better than many smaller ones.
Beacon Hill Elementary wants to thank everyone in the “wonderful Sylvan Lake community” who once again supported our fund raising efforts.
