Students Participate in Spell-a-thon Fundraiser

Elementary students, along with Principle Rodney Buggie
Elementary students participated in a Spell-a-thon on Monday to raise funds for field trips and other school activities.

The top pledge earners were Avery Donahue in grade four who was awarded a Nintendo Switch, Nathan Stewart in grade five who was awarded a hoverboard along with a helmet, and grade five student Kyle LeBlanc who was awarded a drone.

Students who spelled all their words correctly or raised $50 or more in pledges had their names entered in a draw for one of two 450 movie certificates. The winners were Ethan Sullivan in grade 4 and Turner Kenny in Kindergarten. Mrs. A Waugh's grade 5 class raised the most money.

The elementary were successful in their endeavors, as the students raised over $7000 in pledges. The funds will go towards the cost of field trips and other activities.
