On Friday, September 27th, students, staff and parents at Grand Reserve Elementary School participated in the annual Fox Trot Walk-a-Thon fundraising event.
This year, the school surpassed its goal of $7,000 to raise $11,500 for school improvements and technology purchases.
The Fox Trot is the main fundraiser for the school and involves all students. The event raises funds and supports the mission of parents and teachers working together to enhance student learning and build school community at Grande Reserve.
Funds generated by the 2013 Walk-a-Thon will support PTO sponsored events, help purchase classroom materials supporting the new language arts Common Core curriculum, and provide resources enabling 21st century school development at Grande Reserve.
