The Parent Teacher Organizations at Big Rapids Public Schools are known for their outstanding effort throughout the school year, but this year the PTOs at Brookside and Riverview outdid themselves. Superintendent Tim Haist brought that to the School Board's attention at Monday's meeting.
“We wanted to thank our elementary PTOs for organizing the Walk-A-Thon. They were able to raise over $50,000 to help support our students at Big Rapids Public Schools.”
Haist says everyone was amazed by what they were able to accomplish with this year's Walk-A-Thon which was held in October and beat last year's fund raiser by $3,000.
