Tackan Hits the Track to Raise Money for PTA

Tackan Hits the Track to Raise Money for PTA photo

Having fun, keeping active and helping to raise funds for its Parent-Teacher Association, students at Tackan Elementary School participated in a Boosterthon Fun Run on Oct. 3.

Dressed in their school spirit wear, the students went outside to run the race course. Students garnered pledges from family and friends for each lap they ran. The money raised, more than $15,000 in total, will be used to benefit the PTA’s Cultural Arts programs. 

As the students ran the course, teachers marked off each lap completed on the back of their shirt. Since the school exceed their fundraising goal, the students had the chance to duct tape Tackan Principal Dr. Allyn Leeds to the wall.
