Run For Change


Our 16th Annual Service Project, Run for Change, took place on Thursday, October 23rd with proceeds going towards the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Students ran laps around the track to raise money for these organizations, and hundreds of families, friends, and loved ones were honored by name before the run. In addition, several staff members participated in a 5K run at 7:30am to honor 3rd grade teacher, Lashyondha Berry (see picture). Thank you to all the parents, families, and special guests who attended Run for Change, as well as those who financially supported these important organizations.
