Stroll for a Goal Update

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Last week Friday was slated to be our school walk-a-thon, which is called Stroll for a Goal,  in conjunction with our Homecoming festivities. Due to weather, we had to postpone that event until Friday, October 10th.  Sibley is in its 3rd year of running a walk-a-thon as its only fundraising event sponsored by our parent group.  For the last couple of years, the money raised has continue to fund many of the activities that our PTO provides from author visits to field trips and class parties.  In our first year, Sibley students raised over 16,000. In year 2, we raised over 19,000.  This year, students were excited about breaking the previous mark and set a new mark in terms of goal achievement.  Well, they certainly did that and then some.  This year, Sibley raised over the 24,000 mark.  Currently, our focus on raised funds and savings is to improve our playground area and are currently in the planning process for this.  Thanks to everyone that contributed something to our cause.
