FARGO — More than 300 elementary students are celebrating surpassing their fundraising goals with silly string.
Clara Barton and Hawthorne elementary students set a goal to raise $4,000 dollars for new outdoor tables.
The students raised the funds during an “Overcoming Obstacles Field and Music Day.” Students collected pledge donations from family and friends to perform various tasks at a field day. Tasks included jumping jacks, shooting baskets, an obstacle course and singing while swinging.
The elementary students blew that goal out of the water and raised $4,672 dollars.
As a reward, the 325 students each got their own can of silly string to spray their principal, teachers and other staff.
