Last Sunday Old Mill School and the surrounding sidewalk was filled with neon-clad students and familes. Our annual Lapathon fundraiser encourages students to rasie money for the school by running laps and collecting pledges for the amount of laps they run. This year's Lapathon featured an 80's theme, which helped provide inspiration for the T-shirt design and music at the event. Students enjoyed running laps, eating snowcones, cake-walking, adding to the graffiti wall, and participating in a number of games out on the yard.
Congratulations to the top lap runners!
