"Fun" Raiser Nets $1000 for GIGGLES
Monday, May 23, 2005 8:56:19 PM - Monroe Ohio
Recently the Monroe Elementary School physical education department sponsored a "fun" raiser to benefit GIGGLES, the Nancy Cahill Memorial Scholarship fund.  An all-time favorite of all elementary school students in phys. ed. class is the obstacle course.  Over the past several years at the conclusion of the obstacle course unit in gym class, Mr. George Kenerly, the physical education teacher, has hosted an obstacle course show for parents of the first grade students as they demonstrate their skills on the course.  This year he turned the show into a "fun" raiser by charging $1 admission for spectators and $1 for the athletes who ran the course and allowing students of all grades to participate.  The "fun" raiser quickly grew to a size that forced one show to become three shows-1st and 2nd grades at 6PM on May 13th, 3rd and 4th grades at 7:30PM on May 13th, and 5th and 6th grades on May 20th, and the three shows were moved to the high school gymnasium to accomodate the crowd.  During the week before the show, students donated additional monies to the "fun" raiser by donating quarters to vote for the teacher they most wanted to see run the obstacle course at the big event.  Mrs. Susan Knicely, music teacher, was the winner and demonstrated her good sportmanship by running the course at all three shows.  The PTO also raised money by selling pop and popcorn at the events.  A grand total of $1032 was donated to the GIGGLES scholarship fund, a fund in memory of Nancy Cahill, a former PTO officer who passed away last year.  AWESOME job by students, faculty members and parents at Monroe Elementary School!!!
