Ryan's school was trying out a new fundraiser today. Students had to raise money based on how many laps they ran. In some ways I like it better than the wrapping paper sale (student is invested in the process, promotes exercise, and there's a character training aspect that goes along with it all week) and in some ways I don't (it was easier to ask people to buy something because they got something in return for their money rather than just making a donation).
But the event itself was FUN! The kindergarteners and 4Kers ran together:
As they passed the starting line, the teachers would mark off a lap on their shirts (35 was the max):
