Party Competitions Heat Up in Adopt-A-Family Fundraising Contest

Junior Walden Perry adjusting the total money raised for each class.

Junior Walden Perry recently adjusted the totals  for each period as the St. Paul’s students have been vigorously donating funds for the school’s annual Adopt-A-Family program over the past few weeks. In order to raise awareness and interest in the program, one history teacher, Kim Gardner, has even gone as far as to offer a grand prize pot-luck party day for the class of hers that brings in the most revenue for the group.

So far, roughly $500 has been raised in just her five classes alone, and competitive spirit amongst the rival history students has generated a great deal of profit that will not only benefit them, but also the families sponsored by the program. The SPS Adopt-A-Family program brings Christmas cheer to local needy families. Students donate and collect money, then buy, wrap, and deliver the Christmas gifts to the designated families.
