Evergreen Fundraiser is a SPLASH!
DIAMOND BAR, CA--Evergreen Elementary School finished its very successful Educational Support fundraiser with a big splash thanks to the support of parents and event coordinator Kathleen Strudwick.
Students were promised they would have the opportunity to “flush” their principal if they met the $18,000 fundraiser goal.
And the kids did it! On November 8, they cheered as Principal Dr. Don Trimmer climbed into the flush tank.
The school leader got a good drenching each time a student took aim with a tennis ball and hit the bull’s eye.
Later that week, students participated in a water balloon toss that ended with water balloons also being tossed at Dr. Trimmer!
The Educational Support fundraiser raised over $20,000 for field trips, technology, and instructional activities and materials for the school.
Evergreen Principal Dr. Don Trimmer got flushed as a reward meeting the goal during for the school’s Educational Support fundraiser.
Evergreen students loved watching their principal get drenched.
Students paired up to toss water balloons back and forth, and eventually tossed them at their principal!
