Pike County Primary School families have met and exceeded their original goal by raising more than $21,000 that will help the school purchase additional technology for students and make other improvements. The Fun Run fundraising event was organized by the PCPS Parent Teacher Organization and the students are getting excited about their prizes, which will include the fun run held during the day at the school, sliming a coach, making the principal kiss a pig, hitting a teacher with a pie and more. The students took part in crazy hair day, wacky tacky day and raised funds online as well. ’Their goal is to raise money for additional technology for the school and other projects to benefit our students and staff,’ said principal Dr. Holly Harvil. ‘One of the projects they are working on is a Kindness Courtyard. Their theme is kindness which is featured in murals they have painted around the school, on their PTO shirts, and on a Caught being Kind bulletin board by our school library. Some of the murals have been featured on the PCPS PTO Facebook. Our PTO at PCPS is the most active one I’ve worked with in my 18 years in education. They are committed to making wonderful things happen at our school!’Â Students had to raise $12,000 for the top 10 fundraising students to get to slime coach Zack Nauck, $10,000 for principal Harvil to kiss a pig, $8,000 to pie assistant principal April Teal in the face, $6,000 to have a Wacky Tacky Day and $2,000 to have Crazy Hair Day. In addition, the class with the largest amount raised will get a boxed lunch party, students who raised more than $200 will get a pizza and silly string party and the top two boys and top two girls will each win a new bike. ’It only took a week to reach the original goal of $12,000 so they increased the overall school goal to $20,000,’ said Dr. Harvil.
