Students in Heidi Behnken’s classroom won first prize after bringing in more than $2,000.
They will be enjoy a pajama and movie party. They will also get to throw pie in the face of the staff member of their choice.
First grade students who have Jenny Milless for a first grade teacher took second place, and fifth grade students who have Tim Evenson for a fifth grade teacher took third.
The funds from the school’s fundraiser will help to pay for yearly subscriptions for technology programs including iXL Math and Language Arts and Reflex Math as well as PBIS (positive behavior intervention and support) all school activities including the annual parking lot party.
