Kindergarten sets fundraising record!

Gladstone kindergarten students had their best-ever jog-a-thon at the Gladstone Center for Children & Families. They raised a record-setting $10,230, far exceeding their original goal of $5,000.

Each student got pledges from parents, grandparents, and friends. Then the students ran laps in their physical education class to earn money for their school. The funds raised will be used for field trips, classroom supplies, equipment, and incentives for safe, respectful, responsible behavior.

“We are beyond grateful for the contributions from our families in support of our Kindergarten students,” said GCCF Director Sarah Dunkin. “As a result of the money raised, teachers will be able to provide experiences and enrichments inside and outside of the classroom.”
