Recently, Lincoln Elementary students engaged in a two-week fundraiser for new instructional technology at LES. Within that short period of time, LES students sold over $30,000 worth of Believe! fundraising items.
Of that, $15,000 stayed in the building for the purchase of technology, specifically an overhead projector for the Discovery Center and Elmos™ for every classroom. The teachers can use the Elmos to project any document onto a screen or the wall.
Principal Paul Rodriguez and assistant principal Timothy Fifer challenged the students to raise at least $20,000. As a reward for exceeding the challenge, the principals promised to kiss a pig. As an added incentive, they promised to shave their heads if the students raised $30,000.
At an all-school assembly last week, the principals made good on their promise, much to the delight of the cheering students.blog comments powered by Disqus
