For the past few weeks, teachers at West Park have been learning flash mob moves to reward students for positive behavior. At the annual Students VS Teachers kickball game, WPP teachers came together to surprise students on the kickball field! In addition to our fun day, the West Park Place Elementary PTA organized a fundraiser in support of Alex's Lemonade Stand so our students were able to enjoy lemon water ice after the game. Many students donated at least one dollar to support this great cause. A great game was played by our fifth grade students and a fun afternoon was had by all. View the FLASHMOB here: http://www.ChristinaK12.org/apps/video/watch.jsp?v=36303
West Park Place Elementary School will be having an Alex’s
Lemonade Stand to raise money to help fight childhood cancer. On May 3rd, students will be
playing against teachers in a friendly game of kickball. Afterwards, students will enjoy a lemon water
ice by donating a minimum of $1. All
money will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
Last year, West Park Place raised $364.
Our goal this year is to donate $400!
Please help us reach our goal.
