Brian Shaw accepts the check and thanks the
Sheridan students for their generous donation.
Elementary School's Student Council, under the direction of Mary Jo
Opgenorth and Holly Soerens, sponsored a couple of fundraisers for the
Park Project spearheaded by the Shaw family.
First, a popcorn sale was
held. The council students popped enough popcorn for 500 bags. Each bag
was sold for 25 cents. The popcorn sale was a hit as all 500 bags were
sold earning $125.
Secondly, a coin war between
grades was held during the week of April 20th through the 24th. Each
grade had a jug to place coins in. Students' were encouraged to bring
in coins daily. The students were given updated totals at the end of
each day as the grade earning the most money for the Park Project was
promised an ice cream sundae party.
Due to the
overwhelming success of the fundraiser, all students and staff earned
an ice cream sandwich. The two top grades were only apart by $1.57 so
both the third and fourth grades at Sheridan earned the ice cream
sundae party. Both fundraisers earned a grand total of $1,365.37.
Brian Shaw family accepted a check for $1365.37 on Thursday, June 4, 2009.
