St. James Elementary School in the Smithtown Central School District held a Glow Run to support its Parent-Teacher Association.
On Nov. 16, the school hosted the Boosterthon fun run in the gymnasium to raise money for the school’s PTA while also keeping its students active. Prior to the run, students garnered pledges and sponsors from family members and friends for each lap they ran. In total, St. James Elementary School raised more than $35,000 to benefit its PTA.
Students completed between 30-35 laps as volunteers marked off each lap completed on the grid featured on the back of each students’ shirt. To make it even more fun, students had different activities to do during the laps such as skipping, dancing and walking.
