Ask any kid around and they'll tell you nothing beats jumping on a trampoline. And when it's a room full of trampolines, that's more fun. And when there are trampolines on the wall as well as the floors, you can't beat that! This is just what a group of students from our school spent part of the day doing recently. As part of the PTO fundraiser, student shad to sell 14 items to qualify for a trip to Skyzone. Skyzone is literally a building full of trampolines. What more could a kid want? They worked hard and enjoyed a fun day. They even received virtual reality glasses as part of the reward.
To each of the students who helped our school by selling items, thank you. Thank you, too, to our amazing Parent Teacher Organization who works tirelessly to help our staff and students.
Each year Lonedell students and staff work together to ensure no one in our community goes without a Thanksgiving dinner. This year, with the help of our local Boy Scout Troop and Lutheran Family Services, we were able to give out 28 Thanksgiving Baskets. None of this would have been possible without many people in the Lonedell community pulling it all together.
The Boy Scouts collected 2,307 food items on a cold Saturday. These items were used to help fill up the turkey baskets. Many food items collected will be used in our snack pack program. St. Clair's Church of Christ's food pantry took the rest of the items to put in their pantry, which was running desperately low on canned goods.
Our students and staff raised $259.61, which covered just over half of the cost for the turkey and pumpkin pie. Our Parent Teacher Organization has generously covered the remainder of the amount needed. Mrs. Vollmer's club, The Hustlin' Helpers, collected and decorated the boxes that held the dinners.
Thank you to everyone who helped us make a difference.
