Students celebrate Mega Marathon
The program started at the beginning of the school year for students in fourth through sixth grades and challenged them to read 2,600 pages, run or walk 26 miles and do 26 good deeds throughout the school year. On June 2, more than 125 students who completed the Mega Marathon were rewarded with a picnic at the park at the John Torok Community & Senior Center. The event is pictured below.
Shown at right from left are fifth-graders Aaron Hayn and Justin Lutz waiting in line for food at the event. As part of their 26 good deeds, Aaron held the door open for people at church and Justin read to his younger sister, according to district officials.
Shown above is Intermediate School Assistant Principal Ryan Krumpf, at center, talking to students about the goals of the project at the event while Principal Mark Booth, at left, and Green Schools Foundation member Melissa Dyer, who helped serve lunch, look on.
