Independence Elementary students showed off their creative side while raising money for their school last week.
Students dressed up in their favorite Halloween costume as part of the PTA’s annual Walk-a-Thon fundraising event on Friday.
The annual tradition, also the PTA’s biggest fundraising event of the year, encourages students to collect pledges from family and friends before taking laps in the Masquerade March to show off their Halloween costumes. This year’s event raised more than $19,000, organizers said.
The funds will be used to purchased iPads, books and to help defray the cost of field trips, said Kris Maharg, a volunteer and event co-chair.
